The text adopted in the present edition of the first two 
books of Xenophon's Hellenica follows in the main the last 
revision of Dindorf, published in 1885, any departures from 
which are duly noticed as they occur. 

The introduction is divided into several sections. The 
first tries rather perhaps to raise than to solve the nlain points 
in the complicated question- as to the method of composition 
and the intention of the author in these two books, — a 
question, which, since the criticism of Niebuhr, has been 
vigorously discussed by Peter, Sievers, Breitenbach, and many 
other German scholars, but with results on the whole more 
negative than positive. The views taken in this and in the 
following section on the equally vexed question of Xenophon's 
chronology are chiefly based on those advanced by Breiten- 
bach in his second edition in the Weidmann series of Greek 
and Latin Classics (Berlin, 1884). The third section en- 
deavours to supply, from other authorities, what Xenophon 
himself almost entirely omits, an account of the internal 
affairs of Athens during the last seven and a half years of the 
Peloponnesian War ; and for this portion of the introduction 
Gilbert's Beiirdge zur Innern Geschichte Athens (Leipzig, 
1877) h^s been found most useful. The fourth section 
states once again and discusses as briefly as possible the 
many difiiculties of fact and of law occurring in Xenophon's 
version of the trial of the Generals after the battle of Arginusae ; 
and any completeness to which it may pretend is mostly due 


to the many valuable suggestions kindly made by Mr. T. 
Case, Fellow and Tutor of Corpus Christi College. 

The notes are intended not only to explain the critical 
and grammatical difficulties in the text, which, though serious 
when they do arise, fortimately occur but seldom, but also to 
supply a commentary upon the history of the times, and to 
point out even at the risk of repetition the numerous gaps 
and points of obsciuity in Xenophon's narrative. 

To give greater completeness to the Edition, a chrono- 
logical summary, a running analysis, and a copious index 
of proper names have been added. 

Finally, the Editor is much indebted to Mr. Evelyn Abbott, 
Fellow and Tutor of Balliol College, for the great assistance 
which he has so generously given him, in carrying the book 
through the press, and for the many corrections and improve- ' 
ments which he has made for him throughout the whole

§ I. The Composition of the Hellenic a. 

Although the writings of Xenophon, known as the Hellenica, 
have a certain unity of subject in so far as they all treat of Greek 
history, yet even a cursory examination soon reveals that they 
fall into two, if not three, parts, distinguished by intervals of 
time, by differences of style, and apparently by variety of purpose. 
The first part again subdivides into two, of which the one 
extends from bk. i. to bk. ii. 3. 10, and continues the history of 
the Pelpponnesian War from the point where it was 
left in the unfinished work of Thucydides down to aqa b n 
the destruction of the Long Walls of Athens— an ' 

event which Thucydides ^ himself takes as marking the end of the 
war : while the other takes up the course of events again after an 
interval of six months at ii. 3. 1 1, and relates what was virtually 
but another outbreak of th& same war, down to the 
final pacification of Athens by Pausanias king of *^ ^•^- ^^ 
Sparta. The second part (bks. iii. — ^vii.) resumes . * * 

the narrative gf Greek history one and a-half years later, and 
continues it, without any serious break, down to 362 B.C., the 
year of the battle of Mantinea and the death of 
Epaminondas. Two questions, therefore, arise at 3^2 b C 
once, (i) what is the relation of the first part to the 
History of Thucydides ? and (2) what is the relation of the parts 
to one another ? 

As to the first question, evidence both internal, and external 
alike points to books i. ii. being designedly a continuation of 
Thucydides. Diodorus Siculus (xiii. 42) says Sepocp&p koI ecdiro/i- 
nos a(f>* Itv mreXme QovKvBiBrjs t^v apxriv TTiiroirjvrai, Dionysius of 
Halicamassus ' and Marcellinus ' give similar testimony. And

internal evidence shows thiat it is itot a continuation merely in 
the sense in which Thuqydides i:^ntinued Herodotus, or Theo- 
pompus continued Thucydides, by beginning an independent 
narrative at the point where that of the predecessoir stopped ; 
but that it was written with the express purpose of completing 
what Thucydides for some unknown reason had left unfinished. 
On no other hypothesis, except indeed that the beginning of the 
Hellenica itself is lost (which seems exceedingly unlikely), can it 
be explained why the author should begin, not only without an 
introduction — a preliminary which Xenophon dispenses with in 
other works — but without any explanation, however brief, of the 
events immediately preceding, and of the persons engaged in 
them, sufficient to put the reader in a position to understand the 
further development of their history. On the contrary, Xeno- 
phon plunges him * in medias res ' with the connecting phrase 
/xera hk Toura, which seems to refer, to the battle of Cynossema, 
previously described by Thucydides *. He is supposed to be 
already acquainted with Thymochares, the Athenian general, 
and Agesandridas ^, the Spartan general, who had a few months 
previously met in battle off Eretria ; and also to know the place, 
i. e. the Hellespont, where the Athenian and Lacedaemonian 
fleets were stationed when this second (av^is) naval engagement 
took place; while not a word is said of the disaster which 
Diodorus (xiii.41) relates to have ot^ertaken Agesandridas off 
Mount Athos in the interval. Similarly, Dorieus is suddenly 
represented as sailing from Rhodes to the Hellespont, but in 
Thucydides ^ he last appears at Miletus, whence Diodorus * tells 
us that he had been sent by Mindarus to Rhodes. The Athenian 
generals are introduced with the article (roiy orpaT^yois) as if 
they had been already mentioned ; but we are left to gather 
from Thucydides ^ that they were Thrasyllus and Thrasybulus. 
Xenophon omits altogether to mention the movement of the 
Athenian fleet from Cyzicus to the mouth of the Hellespont ^ 
and the corresponding movement of the Peloponnesian fleet from 
Elaeus to Abydos. So, too, (§ 6) Alcibiades sails up from no

one knows where, and (§ 12) Theramenes comes from Macedonia; 
whereas Thucydides ^ had left the one in Samos and the other 
in Athens. The motive of Tissaphemes' journey to the Helles- 
pont is never stated, and can only be supplied by a reference to 
Thucydides' narrative ^. All these passages, therefore, seem to 
take for granted an acquaintance with Thucydides, and if it be 
further supposed that the last fifteen chapters of Thucydides' 
eighth book have been lost — for to all appearances an interval of 
some five or six weeks must have elapsed since the last event 
mentioned in Thucydides and the first alluded to by Xenophon — 
even the points of obscurity in them are capable of explanation. 
Again in books i.-ii. 3. 10 Xenophon adopts an annalistic 
mode of treatment, which it would appear from the later books 
was entirely foreign to his natural inclination for grouping 
events together. But so soon as he has brought his narrative 
down to the surrender of Athens, which Thucydides' had 
announced as the goal of his undertaking, he drops this method, 
and relates the usurpation of the Thirty without any definite 
marks of timfe. And the fact that even in the first period 
he does not adhere consistently * to Thucydides* chronological 
system of summers and winters, shows still more plainly that he 
was modelling his own work on that of somebody else. For 
once * he forgets to give the beginning of the year, twice the 
beginning of the winter ®, and, more often than not, he does not 
notice the end of the summers and winters — data which Thucy- 
dides never omits. And sometimes before he has finished with 
the narrative of one year, he anticipates the events of the next ''. 
Further, Xenophon, like Thucydides, at the end of each year 
finds a place wherein to put a brief account of contemporary 
events, e.g. in Persia, Sicily, or elsewhere, which he could not 
well weave into his main narrative ; but, unlike Thucydides, he 
does not make it plain at what season of the year in question 
they occurred ^. Finally, Xenophon ® skips over the interval of 
six months which elapsed between the surrender of Athens and 
the appointment of the Thirty without any definite mark of time

at all, save the mention of an eclipse \ so that, had we his 
narrative only, we should have no idea that any such interval 
had occurred. 

All the evidence, therefore, external and internal alike, seems 
to show that Xenophon purposely intended the first part of the 
Hellenica to be a completion of Thucydides' unfinished history 
of the Peloponnesian War. 

In discussing the second question, the relation of the two 
parts of the Hellenica to each other, we get little to help us from 
external testimony. A distinction into two parts does indeed 
seem to be implied in the words of Marcellinus^ — ra hk tS>p

But both authors seem to make the distinction one of time only, 
and to regard the two parts as together forming a connected 
whole. Such a view, however, on a comparison of them, would 
appear id be quite untenable. 

In books iii. — ^vii. all the trammels of Thucydides' system of 
arrangement and chronology disappear. Though they contain 
the history of forty years, the beginnings of years are only twice 
noticed *. Summers and winters are no longer taken as formal 
marks of time, but are casually mentioned only in conjunction 
with events'. And the events themselves are no more related 
year by year in the order that they occiured, but Xenophon 
groups them together wherever he sees a causal nexus between 
them, often narrating a connected series of events quite con-, 
tinuously, and then returning to his starting-point in order to 
bring up the general course of iGreek history to the same 

Again, although even in the first two books Xenophon ' once 
breaks through the impersonal style of writing, which he had 
inherited from Thucydides, and in two or three other passages

adds moral comments, such as are hardly to be found in the 
earlier historian, still in the later books he allows his own moral 
and theological proclivities to appear much more on the surface. 
The general theme of the five boolcs seems to be the rise and 
downfall of Spartan greatness ^. As formerly in Athens, so now 
at Sparta, power gives birth to v/Sptr, v^pir to impiety, and 
impiety soon brings pimishment in its train*. Unwarned by 
examples, the Thebans use their supremacy with an insolence 
equally great, and are overtaken with a ruin still more rapid. 
As with states, st) with individuals. Dercyllidas and Agesilaus 
show reverence towards the gods^ and reap an immediate 
reward for their piety : impiety as quickly meets with punish- 
ment. Xenophon is no longer the simple annalist of facts ; now 
he appears in his better known character of the moralist, 
reading his lessons from the pages of human history. 

The differences of style between the earlier and later books 
are no less marked. Books L, ii. are disfigured by omissions, 
by obscurities left unexplained, by unequal and disproportionate 
treatment of events, in themselves equally important, by un- 
accountable breaks and interruptions, and by a general want of 
finish — of which more hereafter. But books iii.-vii., whatever 
may be thought of their positive value as historical documents, 
contain a narrative which is indeed plainly and simply told, but 
at the same time with an admirable' literary finish. In them 
Xenophon follows tlie requirements of literary, if not of historical, 
proportion. No inddents are related at undue length ; no 
events, which he chooses to bring into his narrative at all, are 
scamped. The speeches and dialogues so frequently introduced 
are all appropriate and suitable to the occasion. In passing 
from the earlier to the later books, we seem to pass from chaos 
to order. 

Finally, internal evidence seems to point to the earlier and 
later books of the Hellenics having been written at very different 
dates ^ For in i. ii., with one exception, there are no allusions 

* Cf. v. 3. 27 ; 4. 1. * Cf. y. 4. 12 ; vi. 3. i. 

' iii. I. 17-19 ; 4. n ; 3. 20. 

^ Rosenstiel (De Xenophontis Historiae Graecae parte bis edita) in- 
geniously tries to show by an examination of the use of certain words» 
and more especially of hua^ox and ^MoKmAtiv, and of K^fk and d/x^/, that 


to any event happening later than 403 B. c, though in several 
passages such allusions might have been aptly introduced^. 
The exception is the last words of ii., where Xenophon speaks 
of the fidelity of the Athenian democrats to their oath of 
amnesty as continuing tn Koi vvp. Here Niebuhr long ago 
pointed out that such praise can only mean that certain definite 
persons, who had been guilty of certain definite acts during the 
usurpation of the Thirty, had never down to that time been 
prosecuted or in any way attacked. Therefore the interval 
between the Amnesty and the time when tltese words were 
written cannot have been very long, not more than ten or fifteen 
years at most. Now Xenophon returned to Greece after his 
Asiatic expedition with Cyrus in 394 B.C. He must, therefore, 
have finished bk. ii. shortly after that date. But the last five 
books he must have written much later ; for in vi. 4. 37, when 
recounting the events of 371, 370 B.C., he alludes to the death of 
Alexander of Pherae in 357 B.C., and in bk. vii. he ends his 
history with the battle of Mantinea in 362 B.C. 

So far, therefore, it may be concluded that bks. i. and ii. 
were composed at a time, on a system, and with an object, quite 
different from bks. iii. — vii. 

But, as already mentioned, the difficulties in bks. i., ii. do 
not end here : there still remain to be considered the strange 
omissions, the unequal and disproportionate treatment of events 
of very varying importance, and the numerous points of obscurity 
which disfigure these two books. 

To begin with the omissions, which occur not only in the 
interval between the point where Thucydides ends and 

the Hellenics fall into three parts, the first extending from the beginning 
to ii. 3. 10, the second from ii. 3. 11 to v. i. 36, and the third from 
V. 2 to the end. The first and third parts exhibit, he thinks, a more 
consistent use of the purely Attic dialect, while the second part is fall of 
lonisms. He therefore conjectures that the first part was written just 
after Xenophon's return from the expedition of the Ten Thousand, 
c. 400 B.C., that the second part was first composed immediately after 
the peace of Antalcidas, 387 B.C., but was re-edited (a hypothesis which 
he is obliged to make to account for the somewhat indiscriminate use 
of Attic and Ionic forms) at the same time that the third part was 
written, i.e. subsequent to 362 B.C. 
' Cf. ii. 2. 19 with iii 5. 8 and vi. 5. 55 ; ii. 4. 30 with iii. 5. 5, etc. 


Xenophon begins, but frequently throughout the first two 
books. Xenophon does not mention ^ the Spartan offers of 
peace to the Athenians after the battle of Cyzicus, which, 
Diodorus says, were rejected through the influence of the 
demagogue Cleophon. The recovery of Pylos ^ by the Lace- 
daemonians, which the Athenians had held ever since,425 B.C., 
Xenophon represents as the mere expulsion of some runaway 
Helots ; and he does not say a word about tl\e unsuccessful ex- 
pedition which the Athenians sent under Anytus to relieve their 
garrison in the place; nor about the recovery by the Megarians 
of their port of Nisaea at this same time, which had been in 
the possession of the Athenians since 424 ; nor yet about the 
battle, which shortly ensued, when the Athenians defeated the 
Megarians with great slaughter. Again, nothing is said about 
Alcibiades' plundering expedition against Cyme, though accord- 
ing to Diodorus* it was one of the chief causes of the complaints 
against him, which brought about his downfall. Similarly*, Xeno- 
phon does not tell how in the year of his admiralty Lysander 
organized the oligarchical clubs in Asiatic Greece and the 
Aegean, which, after the battle of Aegospotami, did such good 
service to the Lacedaemonian cause. In bk. ii.*^ Xenophon omits 
the selection of an oligarchical committee of Five at Athens, after 
the surrender of the city, who were called Ephors out of com- 
pliment to Sparta, and the struggle of some months between the 
oligarchs and democrats before the appointment of the Thirty, 
wherein, as a preliminary step, many of the generals, taxiarchs, 
and other important persons belonging to the democratic party 
were arrested. He omits, too, the third visit ' of Lysander to 
Athens in the autumn of 404 B.C., during which the Thirty were 
appointed, and also Lysander's further exploits in the Aegean in 
the next six months ; and, stranger still, he omits to notice 

* Cf. i. I. 23 with Diod. xiii. 52, Nepos Ale. 5. The Scholiast on 
Arist. Frogs 1580, speaks of a second similar application after Arginusae, 
which, if authentic, is also omitted by Xenophon.

Alcibiades' murder^ and the share that Lysander had in bringing 
it about. So, too,* the cruel decree ^ of the Spartans, forbidding 
any Greek state to give shelter to the Athenian exiles, is passed 
over ; and the ultimate fate ^ of the Thirty themselves is dis- 
missed in a single unintelligible phrase. 

Obscurities due to the omission of some important link in the 
chain of events, or to excessive brevity, are even more numerous. 
It has been already shown how Xenophon presupposes a know- 
ledge of Thucydides, and that even then more has to be supplied 
to fill up the interval of six weeks between the two narratives ; 
but the same defects are noticeable throughout. For example, the 
newly-appointed generals coming from Syracuse are made to 
take over thie fleet at Miletus, which Xenophon had represented 
as built and still in dock at Antandros *. Thrasyllus was sent 
to Athens to procure reinforcements for the Athenian armament 
in the Hellespont ' ; but when at last he is given them, he takes 
them, without a word of explanation, to Ionia. No reason is 
assigned for the Lacedaemonian ambassadors and Hermocrates 
attaching themselves to the Athenian ambassadors ®, to whom 
Phamabazus promised a safe conduct to the Persian king after 
the capture of Byzantium. These ambassadors at Gordium 
meet other Lacedaemonian ambassadors returning from the 
king ■', who are introduced with the definite article, as if already 
mentioned. What finally became of Hermocrates, when he 
attempted to return to Syracuse, is never stated *. Callicratidas 
at an important crisis sent ships to Sparta to procure supplies •, 
but nothing more is heard of them. Though in 409 B.C. 
Chalcedon was not captured by the Athenians ^°, yet in 405 B.C. 
it appears in their possession. Theramenes^^ in his defence 
against Critias refers, as to a well-known fact, to the banishment 
of Thrasybulus, Anytus, and Alcibiades, although not a word 
has previously been said about them. After the death of 
Theramenes the Thirty forbid all cf « toO KaraKoyov to enter the 
city^* ; but. it nowhere appears that they had b^en previously

driven out. Finally the Ten in the Piraeus are introduced with 
the definite article, although never before mentioned ^. 

Still more unaccountable is the curious inequality and dispro- 
portionate length with which many episodes are treated. Per- 
sonal details, as any one acquainted with the other writings of 
Xenophon might expect, are often given with considerable 
fulness, like the negotiations between Lysander and Cyrus', 
the stratagem whereby Conon contrived to send to Athens news 
of his blockade in Mytilene', the measures adopted by Eteonicus 
to quell the mutiny of his troops at Chios*, the execution of 
Theramenes^, and the device of the oligarchical engineer to 
hinder the advance of Thrasybulus' siege engines *. On the other 
hand, many important events are dismissed in a few words, e.g. 
the expulsion of the Philo-Laconian party from Thasos and the 
consequent exile of Pasippidas '^ ; the capture of Selybria ^ ; the 
joint attack of Thrasybulus and Alcibiades upon Phocaea'.; the 
capture of Delphinium by the Spartans ^** ; tTie accusation of 
Erasinides Trepi r^y arpariTyias after Arginusae ^^ ; the ardais in 
which the demagogue Cleophon was slain ; the revolt of the 
Athenian allies and. the institution of Harmosts ^d Decarchies 
after the battle of Aegospotami ^^ ; the'amnesty of Patroclides '', 
by which he attempted Jo unite all parties at Athens to sustain 
the coming siege ; the opposition offered to Theramenes* pro- 
posals for peace with Sparta and the ultimate surrender of the 
city**; the appointment of the Thirty at Athens *' ; the return of 
Thrasybulus and the democratic exiles, and their reorganization 
of the constitution *® ; and lastly, the annihilation of the Thirty 
at Eleusis, and the final amnesty of Thrasybulus". There is the 
same want of proportion in the speeches reported in these two 
books. While the speech of Alcibiades to his fleet before the 
battle of Cyzicus is dismissed in three lines *^, the speeches of 
Callicratidas to the discontented Lacedaemonians and to the 
Milesian assembly are given at some length ^^ Similarly, only

senate and assembly on his return from exile is indicated ' ; 
whereas the speeches of Euryptolemus in defence of the 
generals *, and of Critias and Theramenes ', delivered on occas- 
sions of certainly no greater importance, are reported at an 
extraordinary length — greater, indeed, than any in the five later 

To account for these defects various theories, more or less 
plausible, but none very satisfactory, have been started. Some 
of them may be at once dismissed. Thus there is no evidence, 
either internal or external, to show that for these two books 
Xenophon used the materials already collected by Thucydides 
for the completion of his work. Such a hypothesis furnishes no 
explanation whatever why some events should have been put in 
and others left out, why some parts should have been elaborated 
and others not, especially as in the more elaborated portions, e.g. 
the long speeches of Euryptolemus, Critias, and Theramenes, 
there are no traces of Thucydides* peculiarities of style. Still 
less defensible is the theory that in their present shape bks. 
i., ii. are an epitome of a larger work of Xenophon's own. For 
the characteristics of an epitome are to leave out unimportant 
details altogether, and to give a summary of the whole, laying 
most emphasis on the events of most importance. But in these 
books the case is frequently reversed. 

More worthy of examination is Siever's* theory, that these 
defects of omission and commission are due to Xenophon's par- 
tiality for Sparta and her constitution. In support of his view, he 
adduces the omission of the humiliating offers of peace through 
the mouthpiece of the ephor Endius after the defeat of Cyzicus ; 
of the crushing defeat of the Megarians just after they had suc- 
ceeded in recovering their port at Nisaea ; of Agis' unsuccessful 
sally from Decelea right up to the walls of Athens ; of Lysander's 
organization of the oligarchical clubs among the Asiatic Greeks; 
of Ly Sander's cruel conduct towards the Milesians ' ; of the 
violent measures whereby Lysander set up the Thirty at Athens; 
of the part which Lysander played in procuring the assassination 
of Alcibiades — to which might be added the defective account 
Xenophon gives of the recovery of Pylos by the Lacedaemonians, 

* i. 4. 20. * i. 7. 16-33. ^ ii- 3' 34-49. 

* Comment. Inst, de Xen. Hell. ^ Diod. xiii. 104. 



and the mean motive that he attributes to king Pausanias for 
checkmating Lysander's design of extermination against the 
Athenian exiles under Thrasybulus\ But an almost equal 
number of omissions may be collected of incidents favourable to 
Sparta, and of insertions of things damaging to her reputation. 
Thus Xenophon never has a word of praise for Lysander, 
although he was the victor at Aegospotami, and the main cause 
of the downfall of Athens ; and he evidently has a much greater 
admiration not only for the unsuccessful Callicratidas, between 
whose unselfish and pat;;riotic behaviour and Lysander's mean- 
ness and ambition a tacit contrast is manifestly implied ; but 
even for the hesitating Pausanias, who throughout showed him- 
self at heart the consistent friend of Athens. Again, Xenophon 
omits the recapture of Nisaeaby the Megarians, and the capture 
of Chios, Iasos,and Sdstos by the Peloponnesians ^ — all Lacedae- 
monian successes most damaging to Athens, dn the other hand, 
he relates in full the disastrous defeats of the Peloponnesians at 
Abydos, Cyzicus, and Arginusae, and even gives verbatim Hippo- 
crates' pitiable letter to the Spartan government. Neither does 
he gloze over the appointment of the ruffian Callibius to be har- 
most at Athens, or the enormities committed by the Thirty under ' 
his sanction and under the protection of the Spartan garrison. 
Moreover, to take the converse of the theory, it seems to be just 
as much a matter of accident what incidents Xenophon happens 
to insert or omit favourable or damaging to the reputation of 
Athens. Thus, on the one slide he does not relate the nefarious 
intrigues of the oligarchical party after the battle of Aegos- 
potami, their appointment of the Five Ephors, their arrest under 
various pretences of the leading democrats, and their base 
invitation of Lysander to. help them in suppressing the demo- 
cracy. But on the other side, though he does indeed relate how 
conscience-stricken the Athenians felt after the battle of Aegos- 
potami, fearing that now they themselves would suffer the fate 
that they had inflicted on defenceless people like the Melians, 
yet he omits Cleophon's opposition to Endius' offer pf peace 
after the battles of Cyzicus and Arginusae, and his still more 
foolish opposition to the comparatively mild conditions first 
offered by Sparta during the siege of Athens. Neither does he 

^ ii. 4. 29 <l>$ovTiaai Av<rdvdp<^. ' Diod. xiii. 65, 104, 106. 



record the failure of Anytus* expedition to relieve Pylos, and the 
subsequent trial of that demagogue, when he only escaped 
condemnation by bribing his judges, this being, as Diodorus^ 
tells us, the first known instance of corruption in an Athenian 
law court. 

It would seem, therefore, that Siever's theory is equally un- 
tenable with the others, and that Niebuhr's criticism is quite 
justified, that, however Philo-Laconian Xenophon may show 
himself in the ^v^ later books, his narrative in bks. i., ii. is quite 

Later critics' have tried to discover traces of personal 
prejudice. Enough has already been said about Lysander,. 
Callicratidas, and Pausanias, to dispose of the charge in their 
case ; but Xenophon's picture of Alcibiades deserves more 
notice. It is true that he passes over some of Alcibiades' most 
splendid exploits in a word or two, like his capture of Selybria ^, 
his escort of the Eleusinian procession by land, and his success- 
ful speeches in defence before the Athenian Senate and the 
Assembly. But, on the other hand, he passes still more briefly 
over his failure at Andros, his marauding expeditions from 
Samos in the winter of 408-407, for which the first complaints 
.were brought against him at Athens, and his final disgrace and 
loss of his generalship ; and he omits altogether the scandalous 
tales which Plutarch and other authorities delight to retail 
against him. Moreover, he even enlarges on the favourable 
feelings with which far the larger section of the Athenian people 
welcomed him on his return, while he dismisses the murmurs of 
his enemies against him in a few scarcely intelligible lines ; and 
he dwells at some length on the patriotic advice which Alcibiades 
gave the careless Athenian generals just before the battle of 
Aegospotami, suppressing the fact, which Diodorus* relates, 
that the would-be' patriot, was at the same time actuated by 
motives of private interest. The defects, therefore, in his picture 
of Alcibiades are neither more nor less than those to be found 
in his sketches of other persons, like Hermocrates, Callicratidas, 
and Conon, with whom he was certainly more in sympathy. 

So far then the above examination has brought us only to 

* xiii. 64. * Cf. Hertzberg, Alcibiades. 

' Cf. Pint. Ale. 30. * xiii. 105. 


the negative result, that there is no single key whereby to solve 
all the difficulties with which bks. i., ii. abound ; and, indeed, 
that many of them admit of no explanation whatever. In some 
cases we can perhaps see that Xenophon's fondness for personal 
anecdote or interest iii the art of war has led him to narrate 
little incidents, in themselves of no importance, at dispropori- 
tionate length, but personal feelings either one way or the other 
do not help us to account for his omissions. Perhaps the most 
obvious theory to explain them is to regard them as due to want 
of personal knowledge ; but even on this theory we can see no 
particular reason why Xenophon's treatment of events should 
be so uneven. For events occurring almost simultaneously at 
Athens, on the Hellespont, in Ionia, and elsewhere are related 
in one place with unaccountable fulness, in another with 
unaccountable brevity ; and no known incidents of his life at all 
explain the difference. 

Everything, therefore, would seem to point to Breitenbach's 
conclusion, hesitating though it is, being the true one, that bks. 
i., ii. are an attempt to complete the work of Thucydides, on the 
model of which they are manifestly planned, but are themselves 
for some reasons, which there is not evidence enough fully to 
explain, left unfinished ; and that this want of finish is apparent 
both in the defective compilation of the materials, in which so 
much has been shown to be wanting ; in the unequal treatment 
of the several parts, some of which seem to be only provisionally 
introduced; and in the obvious imperfection of the chronological 
arrangement, which falls so far short of Thucydides' system. 

None the less it remains true, that Xenophon is far the best 
and most reliable authority for the last six and a-half years of 
the Peloponnesian War, and for the following usurpation of the 
Thirty. The orators Andocides, Isocrates, and Lysias, and the 
historians Diodorus and Plutarch, when they deal with the 
same events, can be used only to supplement, not to correct, 
Xenophon's narrative. Andocides and Isocrates indeed agree 
with Xenophon in all essentials, except that the latter always 
tends to exalt the character of Alcibiades, while Lysias was too 
violent a pd.rtisan of the democracy, and too much implicated in 
the events of the time for his authority to be preferred above 
that of Xenophon — e.g. in the picture he draws of Theramenes. 




Diodorus seems to have followed Theopompus for his history 
of the years 41 1-404, and Ephorus for that of the years 404-403. 
Hence so long as he follows the former, who, having been exiled 
from Chios for his support of Sparta, was a violent oligarch and 
philo-Laconian, his narrative is intensely hostile to the Athenian 
democracy. Only in the bare facts is there any agreement 
between him and Xenophon, and even in these there are most 
extraordinary discrepancies, many of them owing to Diodorus' 
own carelessness in matters of chronology, which is so great that 
he often mixes up the events of different years ^. At Athens Alci- 
biades and Theramenes are his heroes, and are painted in the 
brightest colours. Every incident tending to glorify Sparta and 
the Spartan constitution is exaggerated. Every incident to the 
contrary is carefully softened down or altogether suppressed. 
Ephorus, on the other hand, was an impartial and truth-loving 
historian, and appears himself to have made considerable use of 
Xenophon's writings ; and so with the change of the authority 
there is an evident change in the tone of Diodorus' narratives. 

Plutarch, in his Lives of Alcibiades and Lysander, seems to 
have used both Ephorus and Theopompus, the former by 
preference. But his purpose being biographical, he aims rather 
to bring out the personal characteristics of his heroes by intro- 
ducing striking stories and anecdotes than to give a consecutive 
account of a series of events. Still his two biographies are often 
useful for filling up some of the worst gaps in Xenophon's 
narrative : though wherever they differ in their accounts of the 
same events, Xenophon is always to be preferred. 

If, therefore, it is in contrast with Thucydides' unequalled 
history of the first twenty and a-half years of the Peloponnesian 
War, that Xenophon's account of its conclusion in Hellenics i., ii. 
appears so meagre and unsatisfactory, it is in contrast with 
Diodorus and Plutarch that we are led to appreciate his merits. 
The later historian cares for history not for its own sake, but as 
an * opus oratorium * in which he can display his own surprising 
talents. The biographer, however charming and artistic the 
result, evidently uses the facts of history only * to point a moral 
and adorn a tale.' Xenophon alone by his simple and unvar-

nished style, by his evident impartiality and love of truth, even 
too by the very defects, which, however they may mar and 
disfigure his narrative, yet by their wholly fortuitous and 
unaccountable occiu-rence, tend rather to confirm its truth — 
leaves upon the mind of his reader the impression that his 
history, so far as it goes, is a history of facts.

In the first two books of the Hellenica we find that not 
only is the beginning of each year of the war marked by 
such phrases as t© de aXXa> crei, tov iiriovTOS erovs, apxoficvov 
capos^, (where Xenophon is evidently following the system 
of Thucydides *), but in several passages additional accuracy 
is apparently given by the mention of Olympiads, the year 
of the war, or the names of the eponymous archons and ephors, 
and also by the notice of contemporary events in Persia and 
Sicily ^ But by all recent commentators such passages have 
been suspected, and in most cases with justice, to be inter- 

^ It is true that both Herodotus and Thucydides occasionally 
give the names of Olympic victors : but Herodotus sometimes 
simply styles a man 'OXvfimovUijs * as a general mark of distinc- 
tion without specifying any particular victory, and sometimes 
relates the victories, whether in the chariot race ^, pentathlum ®, 
or pancratium '^, as incidents in the lives of eminent men like 
Miltiades the Athenian or Demaratus the Spartan ; but in no 
case does he use an Olympiad to fix a date. Thucydides once ^ 
like Herodotus uses the epithet *0\vfxmovLKrj5 as the mark of a 
distinguished man : twice ^ however he gives the name of the 
victor to help fix the date, in the first instance- not specifying 
the contest, in the second taking the name of the victor in the 
pancratium ; but in both instances the celebration of the 
Olympic festival has an intimate connection with his general 
history of the war, and is not introduced merely as a chrono- 
logical datum. Moreover, Polybius^® expressly states that 
Timaeus, the Sicilian historian, (flor. 264 B.C.) was the first 
to use the Olympiad as a chronological era, for which, however, 
the list of the victors in the less famous stadium or foot-race 
was chosen. Nevertheless, in i. 2. i the 23rd year of the war 
is called the 93rd Olympiad (really it was the third year of the 
92nd) : and in ii. 3. i the Olympiad is denoted by the name of 
the victor in the stadium.

Again, Herodotus ^ once mentions the name of the eponymous 
archon at Athens to fix the date of one particular event, the 
invasion of Attica by the Persians ; and Thucydides * sometimes 
gives the archon, ephor, and even the priestess of the Arg^ve 
Hera, to mark some unusual occurrence ; but neither of them 
ever use these official lists to distinguish successive years. 
Further, in two passages the names given in the text of the 
Hellenica are incorrect : for in ii. 3. 9, 10, a continuous list of 
twenty-nine ephors appears (probably inserted by a later hand), 
in which Pantacles immediately precedes Pityas, whereas Xeno- 
phon makes two whole years, if not three, elapse between i. 3. i 
and i. 6. i, where Pantacles and Pityas are respectively men- 
tioned, to mark the beginning of the years ' ; and exactly the 
same mistake is made with the archons. Evidently therefore 
the interpolator must have had before him complete lists of the . 
ephors and archons, must have known the right names for the 
year 404, and then reckoned backwards from that year, but 
unfortunately overlooked the beginning of a new year in i. 4. 2, 
where no magistrates are mentioned, and also of the year the 
beginning of which Xenophon has omitted to mark at all. Of 
this however more below. 

In three passages * the numbers of the years of the Pelopon- 
nesian War occur. In the first the number 22 is right, and 
evidently depends on a comparison with Thuc. viii. 60, 109. 
The interpolator here, however, noticed the apxofjJvov tov tapos 
of i. 4. 2, though in that passage he did not insert the year of the 
war ; so that, when Xenophon again resumes in i. 6. i with a 
T^ 3' €m6vTi ?Tet, he says that twenty-four years of warfare were 
now over. Really, however, the Peloponnesian War had con- 
tinued for twenty-five years ; and the interpolator was betrayed 
into this mistake, because Xenophon narrates the events of one 
year (407-406) ° without marking its beginning at alL So again 
in the third passage, instead of twenty-five years, it should be 
twenty-six. Thus the interpolator makes the war down to the 
surrender of Athens in the spring of 404 last only twenty-six

years, whereas Thucydides^ distinctly states that it lasted almost 

exactly twenty-seven years, April 431 to April 404 '. 

As for the notices of Persian and Sicilian history, though it is 
certain that the chronology of the Hellenica does not at all agree 
with that in Diodorus Siculus, yet, as that author in well-known 
cases is so exceedingly inexact in his dates, this disagreement does 
not amount to much of an argument against them. The pas- 
sages on Sicilian history, however, seem to be inconsistent with 
each other. For in i. i. 37 Hannibal is said in 411 B.c. to 
have captured the cities of Selinus. and Himera ; whereas ia 
i. 2. 8, 10, 12 some Selinuntine ships are still found in 410 in the 
Aegean, acting as Peloponnesian allies, although Diodorus 
specially states' that they were recalled to Sipily before the 
capture of the city. Again, the capture of Acragas is related 
twice over, once as happening in the year 407, and the second 
time as happening in 405. Diodorus puts it in the year 406. 
There is a similar inconsistency in one of the two references to 
Persian history. For in ii. i. 8, 9 an event is assigned to the 
year 406, which it appears from Diodorus could only have hap- 
pened in the year 405. The other reference, i. 2. 19, states a 
mere fact, which there is no means of confirming or denying. 
Inaccuracies of this kind, however, in a work left in so unfinished 
a state as bks. i. ii. of the Hellenica, hardly constitute a suffi- 
cient reason for bracketing them as spurious, especially when it 
is remembered that it was the custom of Thucydides, on whose 
system these books are evidently modelled, to insert at the end 
of each six months of his narrative such events as owing e.g. to 
their occurring in a different scene of the war, he could not 
weave into the main thread of his history. 

We are left, therefore, for our genuine chronological data, 
only with the phrases toO 8' imovros ctovs k,t.\, which serve to 
mark the beginnings of the successive years of the war, supple- 
mented occasionally by additional marks of time like dpxpfiepov 
Xfifi&vos, ;^fi/ia)y fViffi k.t.X. ; and here we are met by a fresh 
difficulty. For Xenophon continues Thucydides from the point 
where he breaks off in his narrative of the 21st year of the war 

' V. 30, 26. « For the list of ephors in ii. 3. 9, 10, cf. note ad loc. 
• xiii. 61. 

§ 2. CHRONOLOGY. 23 

in 41 1 B. c. Since the war ended in May 404, there ought to be 
seven such notices of the beginning of a new year : as a matter 
of fact, Xenophon gives only six ; somewhere or other therefore 
he has left one out, and the question arises, at what point ? 

Dodwell, Schneider, and Weiske would begin a new year at 
i. I. II. But the events that Xenophon narrates between §§ 11 
and yj ar^ all closely connected with each other, as well as by 
definite inarks of time (cf. § 27 ct 5"e rep xpoi/a> Tovra>, § 32 Kara tov 
Kcupov TouToi/), and cannot well be spaced over a whole year. 
Herbst and others put the beginning of 407 B.C. at i. 4. 8, but in 
that case it is hard to discover what were the movements of Alci- 
biades between the capture of Byzantium in 409 B. c. (cf. i. 3. 
21) and his arrival at Samos (i. 4. 8) in 407, and how he could 
have ventured to return to Athens, if he had known of the 
intrigues between Cyrus and Lysander, which began in 408 B. c, 
and which they took such careful measures to conceal (i. 4. 1-8). 

It is better, therefore, with Breitenbach ^, to suppose the 
omission to occur at i. 5. 11. For in i. 4. 21-23 Xenophon has 
brought down his narrative of Alcibiades' doings in the winter 
of 408-407 to his operations round Samos as his headquarters, 
which may very well have lasted till March or April 467. And 
in i. 5. i-io he tells us how Lysander, with the assistance of 
Cyrus, was occupied in collecting and fitting out a new Pelopon- 
nesian fleet, for which the winter months would be specially 
appropriate. Then having brought down his narrative of the 
movements on either side to the same point of time, he resumes 
at § 1 1 his account of their mutual operations against each 
other, which would naturally show fresh activity at the beginning 
of spring. 

No sooner has Xenophon concluded the history of the Pelo- 
ponnesian War with the story of the surrender of Athens, than 
he abandons Thucydides' system of chronology altogether. He 
does indeed mark the beginning of the year 404-403 with a t^ 
d' iiriovTi €T€i^, but we are left to gather the respective times of 
the next year and a-half s events from the accidental mention of 
an eclipse (ii. 3. 4), of the end of summer (ii. 3. 9), of snow (ii. 4. 3), 
of the eight months' duration of the rule of the Thirty (ii. 3. 21), 

1 Jahrbuch f. Phil, und Pad. 187a. « ii. 3. i. 


and of ripe fruit (ii. 4. 25). In fact, in this section of the 
book, Xenophon begins the practice, which he consistently 
follows throughout the rest of the Hellenica, of grouping events 
together, not according to the times at which they happened, 
but according to their causal connection. 

§ 3. Internal History of Athens, 411-403 b,c. 

After the expulsion of the Four Hundred in the spring of 

1 j^y 411^ 411 B.C. the Athenian constitution became a modi- 
B.O. to June fied democracy, which Thucydides ' declares to 

410 B.C. have been the best government that the Athenians 
eyer enjoyed within his memory. The two leading features were 
the abolition of all paid offices of whatever kind, and the limitation 
of the full citizenship to such Athenians as could furnish them- 
selves with arms at their own expense. It was thus the nearest 
approach that we read of in Greek history to Aristotle's ideal 
TToXiTtm', or model democracy, being based chiefly on the 
middle class, and combining in itself the best elements of 
oligarchy and democracy. 

But though this constitution had already received* the ap- 
proval of Alcibiades, and the Assembly had actually passed 
a decree for his recall, the breach still remained open between 
the Athenians in the city and the Athenians on board the fleet. 
The latter could not have been less than 10,000 in nimiber, 
and had just unmistakeably shown their democratical zeal in 
suppressing the simultaneous conspiracy of the oligarchical 
party in their midst ^ : in fact, it was not until the return of 
Alcibiades three years later, in 408, that this breach was finally 
healed. Till then the city and the fleet were almost as much 
separated as two independent states ; the city annually elected 
the usual number of ten generals ; the fleet still retained at it« 
head Alcibiades, Thrasybulus, Thrasyllus, and apparently the 

* The Athenian year began with the ist of Hecatombaeon (c. the 
middle of July), when the magistrates entered npon their offices.

other generals whom they had chosen at the time of the revo- 
lution^. Theramenes and Thrasyllus alone acted as a sort of 
go-betweens : for the former, being sent out by the city in 41 1 to 
try to prevent the Boeotians and Euboeans from building a 
dam across the Euripus, and failing in that object, finally joined 
Alcibiades at the Hellespont, and did not return to Athens till 
three years afterwards : while the latter, after the victory at 
Abydos in the .autumn of 411, was despatched to Athens for 

When at last these two divisions of the Athenian peqple 
again united, the union was due on the one side to a return 
,at Athens, more or less complete, to the old extreme form of 
democracy, and on the other to the extraordinary successes 
of the pavTiKos Bx^os under the command of Alcibiades. It is 
these changes and their connection with each other that must 
now be traced. 

At the same time that the Four Hundred had been deposed, 
Thucydides tells us ^, a board of Nomothetae had been appointed 
with the object, if we may argue from the analogous appointment 
after the suppression of the Thirty in 403 ', of adapting 'the old 
Solonian laws to the new constitution. Four months were 
assigned them for their work. But it would appear that nothing 
was really done : for six years afterwards Nicomachus, one of 
their number and called avaypa(f>cvs rS>v vo/jlcop*, had not yet 
sent in an account of his office, and c. 399 B;C. he was accused 
of having taken bribes to illegally alter and otherwise tamper 
with the special laws assigned to him for revision ''. Thus the 
new constitution was never really put upon a permanent legal 
footing, and party feeling, which had shown itself in the con- 
demnation of the most extreme of the oligarchical leaders, like 
Antiphon and Archeptolemus, was still too much excited to 
allow things to remain long as they were. In the early autumn 
of 41 1 B.C. * the Athenians at home had been greatly encouraged 
by the news of their partial success at Cyno'ssema. In the 
winter the general Thrasyllus, who had been one of the demo- 
cratical leaders at Samos, had arrived at Athens with the

tidings of a fresh victory at Abydos, and with a request for 
July 410 reinforcements for the fleet. And in the spring 
B.C. to June of 410 B.C. Alcibiades totally annihilated the 
409 B.C. Peloponnesian fleet under Mindarus at Cyzicus. 
The completeness vof his victory was vivirfly confirmed by the 
despatch written by Hippocrates, Mindarus' secretary, to the 
Spartan government for immediate help, which was accidentally 
captured and brought to Athens. 

Once more the democratical party became active and powerful. 
For when the Spartans *, in dismay at their defeat, sent Endius 
at the head of an embassy to offer as terms of peace, that both 
parties should accept the status quo, that the Peloponnesians 
would withdraw their garrison from Decelea, if the Athenians 
would withdraw theirs from Pylos, and that an exchange of 
prisoners should be arranged, the Assembly, notwithstanding 
the efforts of the imeiKearaToif voted their rejection on the 
motion of the demagogue Cleophon. *The Athenians,' says 
Diodorus, 'excited by their recent good fortune, thought that 
with their forces under the leadership of Alcibiades they would 
soon recover their old supremacy.' 

Nor were their hopes entirely unfounded; for tl^e victory 
at Cyzicus meant much more than the annihilation of the 
Peloponnesian fleet. It meant relief from the financial distress, 
which had prevailed at Athens ever since the Sicilian disaster, 
and more especially since the loss of Euboea. For immediately 
after the battle Alcibiades set up a custom house on the Bos- 
porus to exact toll from all passing ships; once again some 
of the Hellespontine and Thracian cities began to pay tribute ; 
and once again the com ships sailed as of old into Piraeus ^ 
Money had been the basis of the Periclean democracy, and 
now money opened the way for a return to it. The fleet at the 
Hellespont maintained itself by marauding expeditions, and cost 
the home government nothing. Thus the President of the Trea- 
sury for the year was able to devote as much as twenty-three 
talents towards the expenses of certain sacrifices and festivals 
and of the dia^eXia^f or Theoric fund, which was distributed 
among the poorer citizens to enable them to attend the theatre 
and shows, and which seems to have been the first of the

distributions of public money to be restored. As the revenue 
continued to improve, the old system of payment for all offices 
little by little came once more into force, though the several 
dates of its reinstitution cannot be ascertained. Aristophanes 
in the Frogs ^, which was exhibited in 405 B.C., complains of 
the huge sums swallowed up by the hiKavTiKo^ fiiados, showing 
that by that time the change was complete. 

There is equal difficulty in tracing the steps, whereby the 
restrictions on citizenship imposed after the dissolution of the 
Four Hundred, were gradually removed. Payment for public 
services evidently meant the readmission of the poorer citizens 
to the full discharge of all civic duties. But the means whereby 
this was brought about are unknown. All we can say is that 
Xenophon describes the Athenians as meeting for the trial of 
the generals after Arginusae in 406 B.C., Trdvras Kara ^vXar, 
as if by that time none were excluded from the Assembly. 

One constitutional change can however be referred with cer- 
tainty to this year on the authority of the historian Philochorus^ 
The Senators, like the dicasts, henceforward were to sit in ten 
divisions denoted by the first ten letters of the alphabet. The 
reason of this measure is not stated, but in all probability it was 
directed against the members of the oligarchical clubs ', who 
were wont to sit together, and thus by their united action to 
acquire an influence totally disproportionate to their numbers *. 
Gilbert' has ingeniously conjectured, that these democratical 
changes were carried through by a board of (7vyypa<^f ir, on the 
ground that Demophantus, the proposer of a decree of which 
more will be said hereafter, cweypayfrcVf and not, as usual, fin^v ; 
and that an inscription* of this year mentions o-uyypac^flr, though 
it does not explain the nature of their office ; and further that on 
the analogy of Thucydides (viii. 67), when Pisander proposed to 
appoint ten ^vyypa^fls avroKparopes and of Xenophon (Hell, 
ii. 3. 2), when the Thirty were chosen, 01 tovs naTplovs vo/iovs

<ruyypa\^ov<n, it may very well be argued that they were extra- 
ordinary magistrates chosen to draw up a new constitution, 
and this time in a democratical direction. 

Two documents of this year illustrate still farther the growing 
power of the democrats. The first is the above-mentioned 
Psephism of Demophantus, preserved in Andocides' speech 
on the Mysteries^, which decreed that all Athenians, both in 
the city and in the fleet, should swear to hold as a public 
enemy, who might lawfully be put to death, any one who should 
attempt to overthrow the democracy, or who should hold any 
office after the democracy had been overthrown. This oath 
was to be taken just before the Great Dionysia in the spring 
of 409 B. c. and finds its parallel in the oath sworn to by the Athe- 
nian democrats at Samos in 41 1 B.C.' The second is a psephism 
proposed by Erasinides ^, who was afterwards one of the generals 
at the battle of Arginusae, that Thrasybulus *, one of the assas- 
sins of the oligarch Phrynichus, should be rewarded with a 
golden crown and the gift of citizenship, and that a proclamation 
to that effect should be made at the same Dionysia. Moreover 
at the same time the prosecutions against those implicated in 
the conspiracy of the Four Hundred, which had been suffered 
to lapse after the punishment of the worst offenders, seem to 
have been revived, and to have gone on with more or less 
vigour until the Amnesty of Patroclides in 405 B.C. Not only 
were individuals attacked, but whole classes, like the soldiers 
who had supported the Four Hundred, were punished with 
partial disfranchisement**, so that e.g. it was made unlawful 
for them to speak in the Assembly, or to become members of 
the Senate. Lysias • says, that it was these prosecutions that 
ruined the democracy ; for that numerous sycbphants accused 
innocent persons for the sake of their wealth, while they left 
the guilty untouched, if only they were sufficiently bribed. 
Meanwhile Alcibiades had pursued a career of unbroken

success on the Hellespont and Bosporus. In the summer 
of 410 he had been joined by Thrasyllus at the Hellespont 
with a considerable reinforcement from Athens, and the two 
generals combined to defeat the satrap Phamabazus> first at 
Abydos, and then at Chalcedon, after which he was reduced 
to come to terms and to submit to see Chalcedon once more 
pay tribute to Athens. These successes were jTiiy409 
quickly followed by the capture of Selybria and B.C. to June 
Byzantium. On the other side the Athenians *0S B.C. 
had indeed to set the loss of Pylos in Messenia, and of Nisaea, 
the port of Megara — losses serious in themselves, but with 
little effect upon the revenue. Anytus, the demagogue, who 
had been despatched to relieve the former place was, on his 
return, accused of treachery, and only escaped, it was said, 
by bribing his judges ^ In the autumn of 409 B.C., therefore, 
Athens had regained the whole of the Thracian and Hellespon- 
tine provinces of her old empire, besides many of the islands 
in the northern Aegean. The Peloponnesian fleet had been 
annihilated. Pharnabazus, who had so long and so ably sup- 
ported the Spartan cause, had been forced to consent to an 
armistice, and to promise a safe escort for an Athenian embassy 
to the Persian King. And all this had been mainly due to 
the courage and capacity of a single man, and him an exile ; 
for Alcibiades had never availed himself of the permission to 
return home granted him in 411 B.c.^ So far indeed he had 
acted almost as a sovereign prince. Much still however re- 
mained to be done : Euboea and most of Ionia were still in 
open revolt. Before attempting their reconquest, Alcibiades 
seems now to have felt that a return to Athens was necessary 
for him, if ever there was to be a complete reunion between 
the city and the army. In the spring of 408, therefore, he 
sailed with all his ships to Samos : thence he despatched his 
friends and colleagues Thrasyllus and Theramenes to Piraeus 
with all the spoils of war and captured vessels to prepare the 
way for his reception, while he himself sailed with the remainder 
of the fleet to Caria, to collect still more money. The Athenians 
at home were by this time just as ready on their side to welcome 
him, and even before the arrival of Thrasyllus and Theramenes 

* Diod. xiii. 64, 65. * Thuc. viii. 97. 


had chosen among the generals for the following year, Alci- 
hiades, Thrasybulus, and Conon. The news of his election 
reached Alcibiades at Gythium in" Laconia, whither he had 
sailed from Caria, and he at once set out for Piraeus, which 
he entered on the day of the Plynteria (June), when the shrine 
of the goddess Athena was covered with a veil. Arrived in 
the harbour, even now he hesitated to land, so suspicious was 
he of the real feelings of the people towards him; and it 
was not until he had seen Euryptolemus and other relatives 
among the crowd that had assembled to meet him, that he 
ventured to set foot on shore. Then his partizans closed round 
him so as to form a sort of body-guard, and escorted him in 
their midst in triumphal procession from Piraeus to Athens. 

In the city opinion was still much divided ^ : some said, that 
he had been the victim of the intrigues of his enemies, who 
had plotted against him and procured his exile in order to make 
room for their own ambitious schemes ; others maintained that 
he had been the real cause of all the Athenian misfortunes in 
the past, and would be jusf as dangerous in the future. 

But for the moment Alcibiades, with his marvellous person- 
ality, carried all before him. The effect of his speeches in his 
own defence before the senate and assembly^, was such that 
hone dared raise a voice against him. It was at once decreed, 
that the column set up to record his condemnation in 415 B.C. 
should be cast into the sea, that his goods should be restored to 
him, and that the curse which the Eumolpidae had pronounced 

July 408 against him should be recalled. He himself was 
B.C. to June proclaimed a-TpaTrjyos avTOKparoip by sea and land, 

407 B.C. as the only man able to restore Athens to her 
former power. The rich hoped to find in him a strong opponent 
to the ever-increasing encroachments of the extreme democrats. 
The poor saw in him a champion, who would relieve them of 
their poverty, and whom they would be glad to support, even 
though he should assume to himself the rights of sovereign 
power and make himself tyrant of Athens '. For the moment 
his enemies were silenced, although they continued, as events 
soon showed, as active as ever in their intrigues against him. 

^ i. 4. 13-17. * Diod. xiii. 69. 

' Plut. Ale. 35 ; Diod. xiii. 69. 


The demagogues seem to have been especially bitter, so com- 
pletely were they overshadowed in the eyes of the people by 
their new rival for popular favour. 

It was ominous too that Theodorus the high priest, in re- 
moving the. old curse had said, that for his part he had never 
denounced any curse against him, if he had done no injury 
to the commonwealth : while many of the pious and superstitious 
noted with foreboding, that Alcibiades had landed on the Plyn- 
teria, the unluckiest day in the whole year. 

Meanwhile Alcibiades was occupied in fitting out a new fleet 
of 100 vessels, with the money that he had himself brought into 
the treasury. He chose Adimantus and Aristocrates, apparently 
out of the already elected generals for the year, to be his 
colleagues in the command ^. But before he sailed, hoping once 
for all to quiet the religious fears of the Athenians, as well as 
to assure them of his military prowess, he escorted with all 
his forces the annual procession along the Sacred Way to 
Eleusis, which ever since the fortification of Decelea by the 
Peloponnesians, had been obliged to go by sea. King Agis now 
venturing to offer no opposition. 

At last in October all was ready for his departure, for which 
none were more eager than his enemies ; some, according t;o 
Plutarch, because they feared that he would soon make himself 
tyrant ; others, we may certainly suppose, because they wanted a 
clear field left them in which to prosecute 'their own schemes. 

But during the four months that Alcibiades had stayed in 
Athens, an entire change had come over the aspect of affairs 
in Asia. The able and energetic Lysander had succeeded 
'the incapable Cratesippidas as admiral of the Spartan fleet ; 
and Cyrus, the younger son of King Darius, had taken the 
place of the vacillating Tissaphemes as Satrap of Sardis, and 
had announced his intention of supporting the Peloponnesians 
with money and by all means in his power, even persuading 
Phamabazus, notwithstanding his solemn promises, to hinder 
the Athenian envoys from proceeding to the Persain coast ^ 

Events soon proved the wisdom of Alcibiades* enemies in 
hastening his departure. His attack on the little island of 
Andros was only partially successful. Arrived at Samos, he 
^ XcD. Hell. i. 4. 23 ; JDiod. xiii. 69. ^ i. 4, 7. 


tried in vain to draw Lysander out of the harbour at Ephesus 
to a general engagement. His overtures to Cyrus through the 
mouthpiece of Tissaphemes were rejected with scorn. Money 
and supplies soon ran short, and he was obliged to scour the 
neighbouring coasts on marauding expeditions, making in his 
requisitions, it would seem, but little distinction between friend 
and foe. To crown all, his lieutenant Antiochus, in defiance 
of his strict orders, ventured on a general engagement during his 
absence at Phocaea, and suffered a. defeat at Notium ; and do 
what he could, Alcibiades could not induce Lysander to give him 
an opportunity for revenge. Disappointed in their unreasonable 
expectations of a speedy conquest of Chios and even of all 
Ionia, the Athenians both at home and on board the fleet 
were now as vehement in their denunciations of Alcibiades 
as but shortly before they had been in his praises. All com- 
plaints against his conduct were eagerly listened to ; and when 
Thrasybulus, the son of Thrason, (not to be confused with the 
more famous Thrasybulus, the general), returned from the camp 
to Athens \ and accused him of maladministration, of treason- 
able intrigues with Persia and the Peloponnesians, and of 
building forts of his own, like a sovereign prince, in Thrace ^ 
tjie people at once suspended Alcibiades from his command, 
ordered his colleague Condn to take his place, and in the 
annual elections, which happened to occur just at the same 
time, chose ten new generals, among whom Alcibiades was no 
longer one '. Alcibiades himself, finding that he was equally 
unpopular with his own troops, did not wait to hear the result 
of the accusations against him at home, but retired to his forts 
in the Thracian Chersonese. 
At this juncture democrats of all shades seem to have com- 
July 407 bined to support the constitution, if we may judge 
B.C. to June from the list of the new generals : for among 
406 B.C. them Thrasyllus, Leon, and Diomedon had all 
taken a prominent part in the counter movement against

the oligafcbs at Samos, in 411 6.c.^ ; Erasinides^ had pro- 
posed the decree to crown the assassin of Phrynichus 
the oligarch ; Pericles was the son of the great Pericles and 
Aspasia ; while Conon seems rather to have succeded Nidas in* 
the leadership of the more moderate party. The year was one 
of great financial distress, due to the difficulty of maintaining 
Conon's large fleet of 100 vessels, and to the Peloponnesians 
under the admiral Callicratidas once more taking the offensive 
by sea, and so cutting off the sources of Athenian revenue. To 
meet the deficiency all the gold in the Acropolis was coined 
into money'. Still, when the news reached Athens that Conon 
with all his fleet was blockaded at Mitylene, within thirty days 
the Athenians fitted out a fleet, of 1 10 vessels, making all the 
inhabitants of Attica, rich and poor, slave and free, serve alike 
on board. About July, 406, the two fleets met off the islands of 
Arginusae, and the Athenians under the command of eight of 
their ten generals gained a complete victory over the Pelopon- 
nesians, Callicratidas himself perishing in the fight. In the 
ordinary course of things such a victory would have sufficed to 
insure for some time the political power of the successful 
generals. But unfortunately in the moment of victory the generals 
had neglected both to rescue the survivors clinging to the wrecks 
of the vessels, which had been disabled in the battle, and to 
bury the corpses of the dead. The news of this neglect excited 
great indignation among the Athenians at home, j^y 40^ 
A summons was immediately issued for their B.C. to June 
recall. Thereupon two of their number retired ^^^ ^•^- * 
into voluntary exile : the remaining six returned to Athens, 
were hastily condemned almost without any form of trial, and 
all alike executed. 

Although there seems to be no evidence for supposing the 
condemnation of the generals to have been due to an oligar- 
chical conspiracy, its effect, no doubt, was to produce chaos once 
more among the political parties at Athens. Little indeed can 
be inferred from the list of the new generals, as they must have 
been elected just before the battle of Arginusae, which was 
apparently fought in June, while the trial cannot have taken

place till November. The democrats at any rate still clung to 
their old war policy ; and Cleophon was again successful in 
procuring the rejection of a peace, which the Lacedaemonians 
offered about this time on the same terms as before ' — 2l fact 
which shows that the power oif the demagogues was still as 
great as ever. Many, on the other hand, began to repent of 
their recent dismissal of Alcibiades, and even to advocate his 
immediate recall*. The financial distress was greater than 
ever, and to meet it an extraordinary board of magistrates, 
called Poristae', seems to have been appointed to consider ways 
and means. The fieet at Samos, paralyzed by the proceedings 
taken against its late generals at Athens, never followed up the 
results of its victory, though now commanded by the skilful 
Conon ; and was soon unable to support itself by marauding 
expeditions, being entirely occupied in watching the move- 
ments of the enem/s fleet. For the Peloponnesians, after their 
disaster, had procured from the Spartan government the re- 
storation of Lysander to the command ; and he in the spring 
of 405 had completely restored its efficiency, being backed up, 
as before, by Persian gold. 

It was probably about this time that the Athenians began to 
repent of their harsh treatment of the generals, who had won 
for them the victory of Arginusae : for in the spring elections 
Theramenes, who had taken the leading part in the prosecu- 
tion, was rejected on the boKifiaa-ia after he had been actually 
chosen general, because he did not seem to be ct/vovr rS 
ir\r}6€i * ; and at the same time complaints seem to have been 
brought before the assembly against those individuals, especially 
Callixenus, who had deceived the people in the triaL The 
assembly listened favourably to the complaints, and decreed 
that the persons accused should be bound over to stand 
their trial, but amid the internal confusions of the following 
year they all escaped. It is remarkable that Theramenes was 
not included in the accusation.

Probably just about the time that the newly elected generals 
entered upon their office, of whom only Strom- j^y 405 
bichides, Dionysodorus, and Calliades are known B.O. to June 
by name, all three being stout democrats, the *^* B-^- 
tidings' of the annihilation of the fleet at Aegospotami must have 
reached Athens \ The citizens were at first stunned by the 
news, reflecting that at last the misery that they had inflicted . 
on less powerful states, was about to. return on their own 
heads \ But next day the assembly met and resolved to block 
up two of the three harbours at Piraeus, and to prepare 
the city for a siege. Really little could be done : for the 
Athenians had no fleet, and the com supply was entirely cut off" 
now that the Hellespont, as well as Euboea, was lost, and the 
Peloponnesians still harried the country from Decelea. Five 
months, however, passed before the appearance of the dreaded 
Peloponnesian fleet. Lysander was employed in the interval in 
receiving the submission of the Athenian allies, and in sending 
all the Athenian citizens and cleruchs, whom he captured, back 
to Athens in order to increase the number of mouths to be fed on 
the ever diminishing supply of com. At last in November he ap- 
peared and blockaded Piraeus at the same time, that the two 
Spartan kings Agis and Pausanias advanced with the entire Pelo- 
ponnesian forces close up to the city walls. Within the city, as a 
last despairing measure, the democrats carried a proposal made 
by Patroclides to grant an amnesty to all disfranchised citizens, 
more especially those who had suflered partial disfranchise- 
ment for the part they had taken in the Revolution of the Four 
Hundred ^ The oligarchs, who saw that their day of power 
would soon and certainly come with the surrender of the city, 
seem at the time to have remained quiet. But the forces that 
the Athenians could muster, even with the citizens all thus 
united, were so obviously incapable of oflering a successful 
resistance, that so early as December, when the corn supply 
had completely failed, envoys were sent to Agis with offers of 
peace on condition that the Athenians became allies of the 

' Mommsen (Chronologie) dates it in the month Scirophorion (June 
to July). 

* ii. a. 3. 

' Andoc. Myst § 73 seqq. 



Lacedaemonians, and retained Piraeiis and the Long Walls. 
Agis referred the envoys to the Ephors at Sparta, who alone, 
he said, had powers to conclude a treaty. But when they 
peached Sellasia on the Lacedaemonian frontier, the Ephors, 
on hearing the terms they had to offer, sent them back with an 
injunction not to return until the Athenians had come to a 
better decision. It appears however from the sequel of Xeno- 
phon's narrative^, that they were at the same time informed, 
that a peace might be concluded if the Athenians would con- 
sent to the demolition of ten stadia of their Long Walls. For, 
when on their return the envoys announced before the Senate 
the result of their mission, Archestratus was arrested for 
proposing submission to this condition, and at the same time 
Cleophon carried a decree in the Assembly forbidding any 
such proposal for the future on pain of death ^ 

At this crisis Theramenes came forward and promised, that 
if the people would send him to Lysander, he would at least 
procure certain information as to whether in requiring the 
demolition of the Long Walls the Lacedaemonians meant the 
utter enslavement of Athens, or only a guarantee of Athenian 
good faith. Theramenes was accordingly despatched, but in- 
stead of returning at once with the necessary information, he 
stayed with Lysander for more than three months, waiting for 
the moment when the Athenians would be compelled by famine 
to accept any terms whatsoever. In the fourth month he 
returned, saying that he had been detained by Lysander, who 
had at last advised him to apply to the Ephors, as they alone 
had power to conclude a peace. Meantime Cleophon had been 
put to death on a false charge of failure in his military duties ', 
brought against him by the oligarchical conspirators, who were 
once again secretly active : and now hunger silenced all further 
opposition. Theramenes therefore and nine others were chosen 
to go to Sparta as ambassadors with full powers. At Sellasia 
the ten new ambassadors were again stopped by the Ephors; 
but when they said that they were invested with full powers, 
they were invited to attend a conference of the Peloponnesian 
confederates at Sparta, which had been summoned to consider 

^ it. 2. 14, 15. ' Lysias xiil. 8 ; Aeschin. F. L. 76. 

' Lysias xiii. 15 ; cf. Xen. ii. 7. 35. 


the fate of Athens. Here the Thebans and Corinthians ad- 
vocated the total extirpation of the Athenian name ; but the 
Lacedaemonians, guided, it would appear ', rather by motives 
of self-interest than the patriotic, sentiments, which they openly 
professed, refused to allow a city, which had wrought so much 
for Greek freedom in the past, to be wiped out of the map of 
Greece, and decided to offer terms, far harder indeed than 
those offered four months earlier, but reasonable under the 
circiunstances. The terms were to be that the Athenians 
should demolish their Long Walls and their arsenal at Piraeus, 
that they should resign all their foreign possessions, and confine 
themselves to their Attic territory, that they should readmit 
all their exiles, and become the allies of Sparta, recognizing the 
same friends and enemies and following her leadership by land 
and sea. The number of ships, which they were to be allowed 
to keep, was left to the discretion of Lysander ^. 

The day after their return to Athens, Theramenes, as spokes- 
man of the ambassadors, recited the Lacedaemonian conditions, 
and proposed their acceptance. Even now a few, headed by 
Cleomenes, one of the younger demagogues, raised some op- 
position, but the prevailing distress was too great for any 
farther delay ^ The peace was accepted, and on the i6th of 
Munychion (c April) Lysander, coming from Samos, sailed 
into Piraeus along with many of the Athenian exiles. All the 
ships left in the dockyards were handed over to him, save 
twelve, which he permitted the Athenians to retain. Then his 
troops occupied the fortifications, and began the destruction of 
Piraeus and the Long Walls. 

Thus ended the Peloponnesian War almost exactly twenty- 
seven years after its first outbreak in April 431 B.C. 

§ 4. The Trial of the Generals after Arqinusae. 

For this incident in Athenian history Xenophon, as being 
himself contemporary with the event, is undoubtedly the chief 
and the best authority. His account seems to be a simple and 

* Cf. ii. 2. ao with ii. 3. 41. 
• * ii. 2. 20, Diod. xiii. 107. Pint. Lys. 14. 

' Cf. Lysias xiii. 13. 


impartial statement of the facts of the trial, and the points of 
obscurity afe apparently due, not to any wilful perversions, but ta 
omissions as to questions of fact and of law, which it is difficult 
to supplement from any other sources. Diodorus (flor. 15 B.C.) 
gives only a meagre narrative of the trial, based on Theopompus 
(flor. 333 B. c), and evidently here, as in other passages, holds a 
brief in favour of Theramenes, though he condemns the treatment 
of the generals. Aristophanes' Frogs, exhibited in the year 405 
B. C, shows us somewhat of the prevailing feeling at the time in 
Athens, and more especially as to the part played by Thera- 
menes, which would seem to have incurred the general dis- 
pleasure of the people. Plato (Apology, c. 32) and Xenophon 
(Memorabilia, i. i. 18, iv. 4. 2) more fully describe the bold 
resistance offered by Socrates to the unconstitutional demands 
of the Assembly. It may therefore be gathered that the whole 
literary opinion of the day strongly disapproved the condemna- 
tion of the generals. 

In his own narrative (i. 6) Xenophon gives a very brief 
summary of events. In the battle at Arginusae the Athenians, 
he tells us, lost twenty-five ships, crews and all, except a few 
survivors, who made their way to shore. The generals in 
command had ordered the trierarchs Theramenes and Thrasy- 
bulus and some of the taxiarchs, with forty-seven ships, 
to rescue those still clinging to the wrecks, while they 
themselves sailed to Mytilene against Eteonicus. But a great 
storm ^ arose and prevented the rescue, and also, it wquld seem, 
their own passage across to Mytilene. Euryptolemus, however,, 
in the course of his speech '^ adds several details. Immediately 

^ Grote (vii. 430) points out that immediately after the battle the 
Pelopomiesian despatch boat brought the news of Callicratidas* defeat to 
Eteonicus at Mytilene, apparently without any difficulty, although its 
course was N.W. ; and that afterwards the storm was not sufficient to 
stop the same boat from sailing out of the harbour and in again once 
more, nor yet to prevent Eteonicus' fleet from sailing S.W. to Chios : in 
fact the wind was ovpios, which means not * fair,* but 'favourable*: 
though it is true that Conon at the same time thought it more prudent to 
wait till the wind was cvStatrepos before he started in pursuit. Probably 
therefore it blew a strong gale from the N. or N.E. Cf. Theramenes' 
speech (ii. 3. 35) and Diodorus (xiii. 100). 

« i. 7. 17, 29. 


after the battle, he says, the Athenian fleet returned to the 
Arginusae islands, and there the generals held a council of war. 
Diomedon wished to rescue the survivors on the wrecks, Erasi- 
nides to sail at once against the enemy : but Thrasyllus pointed 
out that both objects might be effected by leaving forty-seven 
ships under the command of the trierarchs Theramenes and 
Thrasybulus, and of other subordinate officers, to look after the 
twelve disabled vessels [thirteen of them must therefore have 
sunk in the interval, cf. 6. 34], while they themselves sailed 
with the rest of the fleet against Eteonicus at Mytilene. They 
accordingly tried, he adds, to sail (§ 31, cttXcov), but the storm 
prevented the rescue. Diodorus (xiii. 100) here makes an im- 
portant addition : the sailors of the forty-seven ships refused to 
work hid T« T^v €K Trjs fid\r)s KaKoirddeuiv Kal dta t6 fi4y€6os tS>v 
KVfAoravy the general result being that the men clinging to the 
sinking ships were left to perish. 

Afterwards the generals met together to draw up a despatch 
to the Athenian senate and people^. Six of them wished to 
mention in it the orders given to Theramenes and Thrasybulus ; 
but Pericles and Diomedon out of .kindness to the trierarchs 
persuaded their colleagues to omit it. Accordingly in the 
despatch they merely wrote that the storm had prevented all 
rescue \ 

Xenophon ' goes on to relate that the Athenians at home, as 
soon as they heard the news, deprived all the generals of their 
command except Conon, and that they chose to be his colleagues 
Adimantus and Philocles. Diodorus states in addition jthat 
they summoned the generals home with all speed to stand their 

1 i. 7. 17. 

' Diodorus (xiii. 10 1) gives quite a contradictory account of the 
despatch : he makes out that Theramenes and l^hiasybulus had already 
returned to Athens before that the generals, suspicious that they might 
intrigue against them in the city, addressed a letter vpos t6v S^fjioy to 
explain that they had given orders to the trierarchs. Grote*s attempt 
(vii. 429) to reconcile the two by supposing that Diodorus has con- 
fused a private letter addressed by the generals to their friends at 
Athens with the- public despatch mentioned by Xenophon, is a mere

trial. Thereupon of the eight that had fought at Arginusae two, 
Protomachus and Aristogenes, retired into voluntary exile : the 
other six returned to Athens. Among the latter Erasinides was 
accused immediately on his arrival before a BiKaarrrjpiov pro- 
bably on a ypa(l>fi kKotttjs Brjfioa-mv xp^p-^Tcav by Archedemus, who 
was at that time npoararris tov drifiov, other charges bein^ made 
at the same time against his generalship. The result of the 
trial was apparently that a fine was imposed upon him and 
imprisonment until he should pay it. 

Afterwards the generals jointly made a statement before the 
Senate as to the battle and the severity of the storm, of which 
Xenophon unfortunately does not give the details. Possibly it 
may have been the same as the defence that they afterwards 
made before the Assembly, that they had indeed given orders 
to Theramenes and Thrasybulus to rescue the shipwrecked 
crews, but that the violence of the storm had rendered all rescue 
impossible. This hypothesis would account for Theramenes 
saying at the first meeting of the Assembly, that in their de- 
spatch they blamed no one but the stonn, and some two years 
afterwards maintaining in his defence against the accusations 
of Critias \ that the generals had begun to accuse him first, so 
that he had acted, as indeed Critias had asserted, only in self- 
defence. Such too seems to have been the prevailing opinion 
as to his conduct at the time, if we may believe Aristophanes * ; 
and Diodorus' account leaves much the same impression. On 
the other hand it is almost as easy to suppose that Theramenes, 
being in extremis^ devised this defence, which, such as it is, 
seems excessively lame, on the spur of the moment, and that 
Diodorus invented his account of the trial to justify this subse- 
quent defence. But, however this may be, on Timocrates' 
proposal, the Senate resolved to arrest the generals, and bring 
them before the Assembly. 

The question here arises, what particular form of judicial 
machinery was thus set in motion against the accused generals. 
It has been very generally assumed ', that the accusation was 
an ctVayyeXia of the form which Harpocration (s. v.) defines to 
be applicable cVl di^/xoo-iotr ddiKfjfUKri fieyiarois Koi dvafioK^v fxfj

was (i) for the Senate, if after the preliminary hearing the 
charge appeared to be beyond its own competence, to refer it 
either to a heliastic court or, if the charge were very extra- 
ordinary, to the Assembly. Then (2) the Assembly when it met 
might either itself consider, whether there was sufficient evi- 
dence against the accused for the charge to lie, or, if there 
could be no manner of doubt upon that point, simply to deter- 
mine what should be the method of the trial. Now Xenophon's 
narrative does to a certain extent support this theory : for 
Euryptolemus in his speech (§ 33) entreats the people not to 
convict the generals of irpoBoa-iop dvri rrjs ddvpapias, and it is well 
known that in cases of Trpoboa-ia the (laayyeXia was the ordinary 
form of procedure. Again in § 4 Theramenes maintains at the 
first meeting of the Assembly, that the generals diKaiovg €ivai 
\6yov vTrotrx^lv : and in § 28 ^ Euryptolemus urges the people 
not to deprive thie accused of all opportunity of legal defence : 
so that both passages might be taken to imply, that at its first 
meeting the Assembly merely gave the case the usual pre- 
liminary hearing. On the other hand it must be remembered, 
that neither Xenophon nor Diodorus speak of the charge as an 
(laayyeXia, nor of the first meeting of the Assembly as sum- 
moned merely to consider the justifiability of the accusation ; 
that all the precise information we possess about this particular 
kind of procedure is subsequent to the vopos €la-ayy€\TiK6s, the 
date of which is certainly not earlier than the archonship of 
Eudides 403 B. c. ; and that in this particular case the proceed- 
ings were irregular throughout. 

There is indeed an obvious reason why Timocrates should 
have proposed in the Senate that the generals should be brought 
before the Assembly rather than before an ordinary Heliastic 
court : for Theramenes and his party would evidently expect to 
be able to work with much more effect upon the feelings of the* 
Assembly, made up, as it was at this time, of the old, the 
young, and the infirm (the. large majority of the able-bodied 

' Cf. §§ 5, 23. 


citizens being still on board the fleet), than upon the feelings of 
a comparatively select body of sworn dicasts. 

Accordingly at the first meeting of the Assembly Theramenes 
and his followers appeared as the most prominent accusers of 
the generals, maintaining, that if any one was to blame for the 
death of the shipwrecked crews, it was the generals themselves, 
who in their despatch had simply mentioned the storm as the 
cause. In reply the generalsi made only a short defence, as the 
leg^l time for speaking was not allowed them, relating how they 
had given orders to Theramenes, Thrasybulus, and other capable 
men to rescue the crews, while they themselves were sailing 
against the enemy ; and repeating that really it was the storm 
which had prevented the rescue*. Their defence was supported 
by the evidence of the pilots and sailors of the fleet ; and short 
as it was, produced such a favourable impression, that many 
came forward to* go bail for the generals, and, it was quite 
evident that, had a vote been taken, it would have been in their 
favour. It was, however, too late in the evening for a show* of 
hands to be seen ; so that it was resolved that the case should 
be adjourned to a second meeting of the Assembly, and that 
meantime the Senate should prepare a npofiovXevfia, as to the 
method by which the generals should be tried. 

In the interval occurred the festival of the Apaturia, which 
the members of each family met to celebrate in common, and at 
which the youths, just come of age, were registered on the roll 
of their demes. This time many a place was seen to be vacant, 
and many a family appeared in mourning garb. Theramenes 
and his party, availing themselves of these natural feelings of 
grief to kindle great indignation against the generals, seem to 
have induced not only the kinsmen of the dead to attend the 
second meeting of the Assembly, but, at least according to 
Xenophon's narrative*, to have gone so far as to suborn men 
to appear among the crowd of real mourners, clad in black 
garments and with shaved heads, just as' if they had been 

At the same time too, they persuaded Callixenus to accuse the

that the generals had asserted otSv r' ttvai auaai Tobs Sv^pas 
' Cf. note on § 8. 


generals in the Senate, which met according to the decision of 
the Assembly, and at his instigation drew up a most monstrous 
Trpo/3ovX6v/ia, that since the accusation and defence had been 
already heard at the previous Assembly (which of course was 
not true), at the next meeting the people should vote at once by 
tribes, without any further hearing of the case, upon aill the 
generals collectively ; that the votes should be given openly 
(i.e. not, as usual, by secret ballot) ; and that if the generals 
were found guilty, they themselves should be put to death and 
their goods should be confiscated. Thus in defiance of all 
Athenian legal procedure and traditions no real trial was to be 
granted to the generals at all, the voters were to be intimidated, 
and sentence was to be passed upon all the accused collectively 
instead of separately. 

Accordingly at the next Assembly, Callixenus brought forward 
this 7rpo0ov\€viJLa : and the general excitement thus produced 
was still further heightened by the declaration of a sailor, who 
had 'saved his own life by clinging to, a meal-tub, that his drown- 
ing companions had bidden him, if he should escape, tell the 
people that the generals had left the most patriotic of the citizens 
to perish. 

Hereupon Euryptolemus, who was cousin to Pericles, one of 
the accused generals, together with some others, threatened 
Callixenus with a ypa<l)ri napavSfKop for making so unconstitutional 
a proposal ; but they were howled down by the people and 
forced to withdraw their threat, one Lyciscus even proposing 
that they should be included in the same vote as the generals, 
unless they gave way. Now, however, some of the Prytanes, 
who were presiding over the meeting, refused to put the 
question to the vote : but when Callixenus menaced them 
with the same treatment, they all withdrew their opposition 
except Socrates. 

Foiled in this attempt to procure justice for the accused, 
Euryptolemus now came forward with an amendment to the 
irpo/SouXev/xa, or rather perhaps with an alternative proposal, 
in advocating which he was able to make a speech of consider- 
able length in defence of the generals. In the course of it 
he stated and restated the facts of the case, and pointed 
out that two legal methods of procedure were open to the 


people. Either the generals might be tried before the people ^ 
in accordance with the decree- of Cannonus^, which laid down 
certain most severe penalties against such persons as had 
injured the conmionwealth : or they might be tried before a 
Heliastic court under the law against sacrilege and treason. 
But whichever of these two methods the people preferred, they 
ought to be tried separately^ fair time being allowed for the 
accusation, defence, and taking of the votes. In conclusion 
therefore', Euryptolemus formally moved that the former of 
these two methods should be adopted, namely, that the accused 
should be separately tried according to the decree of Cannonus. 
When the two proposals were put to the vote, the people 
preferred that of Euryptolemus : but virofioa-aficpov M€V€k\€ovs a 
second vote was taken, at which the Senate's proposal was 
adopted. Afterwards the eight generals were condemned to 
death, the votes being taken presumably on the method laid 
down in the npo^ovXtvfia, and the six of them, who had returned 
to Athens, were inmiediately executed. 

^ iv Tf) ^fjuf. Grote seems to be mistaken in laying so much em- 
phasis on the fact that the people in the iKKkrjaia were not put on oath : 
for this passage alone, where Euryptolemns is emphasizing the proper 
legal procedure, wonld be sufficient to show that the Assembly had full 
competence to try such cases itself without referring them to a Heliastic 
court, and other analogous instances are- produced by Sch6mann (De 
Comit. Athen., p. 206). 

* t6 Kawaivov }frfi<pi(r/ia : cf. Aristophanes, Eccl. 1089. Although 
there is no particular reason why the words dlxa %Kaarov should not have 
occurred in the decree, the balance of evidence seems on the whole to be 
against it. For in § 23 Euryptolemus insists just as much on the im- 
portance of separate trial for each of the accused, if the other constitu- 
tional alternative Kard. rbv v6fAov . . . o; iariv inl rois Upoavkois teed rrpod6- 
rats should be adopted instead. Moreover, in § 34 he seems to put the 
.words Blxa ticaarov into his amendment rather in opposition to the /u$ 
^fffypffi of Callixenus' itpofiovkfviia than in close connexion with the mar^ 
rh Kaw<avo{i if/^<tHafiau Finally, the Scholiast on Aristophanes (ad loc) 
gives quite a different interpretation of the word biaktXrjfi/jUvov, which 
commentators have assumed to refer to the supposed 8/xa ttcaxfrov of the 
decree, viz. tcaT^x^/^fvov kKaripojOw dvoXorftToOai rbv kot* flaoYftXiav 
dwoKpiv6fitvov — an interpretation which fits in very well with Xenophon^s 
lelkfiivov Awolkxetv, 


What however was the nature of this vTrfOfioaia ? Viewed 
simply in relation to the context, the passage seems to 
mean that Menecles challenged the vote on some formal 
ground, which rendered it necessary for the cmaTdTrjs to 
^put~'the question to the vote again. Ordinarily, however, a 
vnafioaia meant much more : it meant a determination in 
the mover of it to bring the question challenged under the 
cognizance of a court of law, and had the effect of suspending 
the validity of the resolution until the court had given its de- 
cision^ But Xenophon never says a word about any such ad- 
journment, and evidently implies that the second vote was 
taken immediately after the first and on the same day. We have 
therefore to suppose either that Menecles interposed a wra)/zo<rta 
of a kind not otherwise known, or that the neglect to carry 
into effect the adjournment that it entailed was merely one 
more among the many unconstitutional incidents of the day, 
unless • indeed we may believe the otherwise untrustworthy 
author of the Axiochus^ (c. vii.) who speaks of Theramenes 
and Callixenus having at a subsequent meeting^ rfj vtrrcpaia 

' It is impossible to attach much weight to this statement in the 
Axiochus, because, short as it is, it contains two obvions mistakes : 
(i) it speaks of irpStdpoi, although none were instituted before the 
archonship of Euclides, 403 B. c. ; (2) it speaks of rpifffxypiuv kxKXri- 
cia(6vT03Vf which is evidently a fallacioas computation of the whole body 
of Athenian freemen. Moreover, the whole dialogue, as Grote (Plato, 
cap. iv.) shows, is a late production, and possesses no authority. 

' Gilbert here raises the question as to what became of Socrates* 
opposition, which both Plato and Xenophon represent to have been 
unswerving ; and finds its solution in the hypothesis of an adjournment, 
because at a second meeting Socrates would no longer have been 
imffTdrrjs, Probably, however, Socrates' scruple, which was a strictly 
legal one,'was satisfied by his putting Euryptolemus' alternative motion 
to the vote, which contained a strictly legal proposal, although its rejection 
.carried with it the passing of the Senate's Trpofiov\ev/ia ; for this 
seems to be the force of the preposition in composition in the words 
diaxfiporovovfxivcuv, diaxtipoTovias. Nor need the interposition of 
Menecles' vircDfwaia have made any difference, if the question was 
immediately put again on the same day : in this case all that Socrates 
had to do was to put Euryptolemus' motion over again : and then, 
when it was rejected, the irpojSovAcv/xa was ipso facto carried. Cf. Good- 
win in the Transactions of the American Philo^. Assoc. 1885, p. 172. 



suborned the proedri and so procured the condemnation of 
the generals. 

However that may be, shortly afterwards the people repented 
of their injustice, and voted that a public prosecution should be 
instituted against those who had deceived the people. Callixenus 
and four others were accordingly arrested, Theramenes not 
being among the number, which seems to show that some dis- 
tinction was drawn between his conduct and that of the rest, 
possibly because it was felt, as Diodorus insists at some length, 
that he was driven to it by the exigencies of self-defence. But 
before the accused could be tried, they all escaped amid the 
political confusion of the following year. Callixenus indeed ven- 
tured to return with Thrasybulus and the exiled democrats in 
403 B.C., but hated by all, says Xenophon, he died of starvation.

at9i%, in a second battle ; the Athenian victory at Cynossema being | 
apparently the first (Thuc. viii. 106). 

§ 2. cK T680V. For the positions of Dorieus,Mindarus, Tissaphemes, 
and Alcibiades at this time see Introd. pp. 6, 7.

§ 4. Iirl ttJv 6<&XaTTav, i.e. to Abydos. 

§ 5. I£ IcdOivoO. Mindarus had moved his fleet from Elaeus to Abydos 
(cf. Diod. xiii. 45), so that, since Ilium is twenty miles from Abydos, 
and since he saw Dorieus entering ifia ^/lifx}, in all probability the fight 
must have been renewed the day after Dorieus' arrival in the Hellespont. 
Moreover the Athenian ships seem (cf. §§ 2, 3) to have sailed from 
Madytus, fought against Dorieus and returned to Madytus again before 
the second battle — a process, which, considering the twenty or thirty 
miles thus traversed, must have occupied several .hours. Further, since 
Madytus was nearly opposite to Abydos, the second battle must have 
been fought somewhere between the two cities, and consequently much 
higher up the Hellespont than the first. Diodorus (1. c.) speaks of one 
battle only, making Mindarus sail down from Abydos to the support of 
Dorieus at the Dardanian promontory. Accordingly Breitenbach, wish- 
ing to reconcile the two accounts, regards l£ kotdivov as an interpolation. 

§ 6. ^apvdpa^os was satrap of Phrygia Minor and Bithynia, and 
was now in league with the Peloponnesians (Thuc. viii. 80, 99). 

§ 7. (rv|«.(^pd(avTC8, 'having formed in close order.' 

§ 9. avXXojp^y. Though after this Alcibiades could never again hope 
to delude the Athenians with promises of Persian aid (Thuc. viii. 82), 
his own naval successes round Samos and now in the Hellespont seem 
to have been sufficient to secure for him their confidence. Tissaphemes

date the campaign of 410-409, because Diodorus says that the battle of 
Cyzicus was fought ^817 rov x^'At^vos \i\^ovro^. But Diodorus by the 
end of the winter means February, not, like Thucydides and Xenophon, 
the beginning of April. 

els KapSCav. On the west coast of the Chersonese. 
§ 12. OT]pa|jiivT)S. (Diod. xiii. 47, 49.) After trying in vain to prevent 
the Euboeans and Boeotians from uniting Euboea with the mainland by a 
bridge across the Euripus, Theramenes had sailed to the Aegean islands 
in order to replace the democracies in the various states, had then lent 
aid to king Archelaus of Macedon in the siege of Pydna, and finally 
joined Thrasybulus (cf. supr. § 8) on the Thracian coast. 

§ 13. cJcXoi&lvois Tol iJic-ydXa lo-rCa, i.e. the sails of the greater of the

§ 18. Tois ciKoox. The article is accounted for by the previous mention 
of the Athenian fleet (cf. infr. i. 6. 26). There is no need to suppose 
that dpiffrcus has dropped out of the text (cf. Plut. Ale. 28).

again till Lysander was appointed admiral in 408 B. c. ; cf. Plato,

the words fieixvrjfiivovs . . . vvdpxovffav must then be an appeal made by 
the generals to their soldiers to give them a fair hearing, when they 
returned to Syracuse, — an appeal quite uncalled for after the loyalty 
which these soldiers had just shown them. If however the words be 
transposed, withDindorf,to their present position in the text, the passage 
at once becomes intelligible. When the soldiers refused to elect new 
generals, notwithstanding the news that the present generals had been 
exiled, Hermocrates told them that they ought not to rebel against the 
home government ; but that if any one had any charge to make against 
himself or his colleagues, both he and they were in duty bound to give 
an account of their commands. As however no one brought any accu- 
sation against them, they consented to continue in command till their 
successors arrived.

§ 31. KaniYopifio-as. Thucydides (viii. 85) narrates, how in 41 1 B.C. Her- 
mocrateis had accused Tissaphernes at Sparta of playing a double game 
between the Peloponnesians and Athenians. He is mentioned (infr. i. 
3. 13) as accompanying some Spartan envoys, who, at the same time as 
some Athenian envoys, were to meet Pharnabazus at Cyzicus, 409 B.C. 
Since Diodorus puts his expedition against Syracuse in 408 B. c, it must 
have been shortly after this meeting that he obtained from Pharnabazus 
the assistance described in this passage. Tissaphernes was the personal 
enemy of Pharnabazus. 

€v Tovnp 8i -TJKov, cf. ififivav tojs dfiteovro . . . AvewifjapciyTO. The 
chronological sequence of events here seems to be hopelessly confused. 
How could the old generals have at the same time waited for the new 
ones to arrive and been sent on their way with promises of future help ? 
Why in § 31 does Xenophon tell the story already narrated by Thucy- 
dides (viii. 85) of what had already happened to Hermocrates early in 411, 
and couple with that his visit to Pharnabazus, which must certainly have 
been subsequent to his exile, mentioned in § 27 as apparently occurring 
about the beginning of 410 B.C.? and why does he insert at this point his 
preparations for his attack upon Syracuse, which was not actually made 
• till 408 B. c. according to Diodorus (xiii. 63) ? Again, to what interval 
of time does kv rovrqt refer ? for the new ships building at Antandros in 
the spring of 410 cannot have been finished till the summer, i.e. after 
the beginning of the next campaign. Perhaps it may be interpreted 
to mean the time following the agreement made between the old generals 
and the army, inclusive of the time required for building the ships. -Tikov 
must therefore be translated as a pluperfect, * had arrived.' 

els MCXtitov. This agrees with Thucydides, 1. c. 
§ 32. *Ev 0d(rcp. Thasos had revolted from Athens in 411 B. c, two 
months after Diotrephes, an Athenian oligarch, bad put down the 
democracy, then existing, in favour of an oligarchy (cf. Thuc. viii. 64), and 
had since submitted to the government of a Spartan harmost. Now it 
appears that the popular party under Ecphantus had expelled Eteonicus 
the harmost and his supporters, and admitted Thrasybnlus with an 
Athenian force just after the battle of Cyzicus : cf. this section with 
§§ 22. 12, and with Demosthenes (c. Lept. § 67), who adds that this 
affair further led to t6v irepl Bpdicrjv t&itov entering the Athenian alliance. 

&p|jio(rrfjs. In 423 B. c. the Spartans appointed governors in 
Thrace (Thuc. iv. 131), and in 413 king Agis made Alcamenes harmost 
of Euboea (Thuc. viii. 5). But it was not till the admiralty of Lysander,

history, i. 2. 19, ii. i. 8-9, as interpolations : but they may very well be 
justified on the analogy of Thuc. ii. 28, iii. 87, 92, etc., and indeed, since

of the recapture of Coryphasium or Pylos on the Messenian coast by the

general Demosthenes in 425 B.C. Diodorus (xiii. 64) says that the place 
was at this time garrisoned by some Messenians, and when they were 
attacked by the Spartans, the Athenians sent a fleet of thirty vessels 
under Anjrtus to raise the siege. Anytus, however, was unable to 
weather Cape Malea, and therefore returned to Athens ; whereupon 
the Messenians shortly after surrendered. Xenophon omits altogether 
' to notice the important recapture of Nisaea by the Megarians about the

§ 8. povX6|i,cvos, K.T.\, Cyrus' measures to prevent the news of his

daemonians from reaching the Athenians, must have proved successful. 
Otherwise it is hard to believe that Alcibiades would have chosen this 
moment to return to Athens ; whereas, supposing him to have been in 
ignorance, no moment could have seemed more propitious. He had 
restored the Athenian dominion over the Bosporus, Propontis, and 
Hellespont, had concluded a favourable treaty with Phamabazus, and 
had sent an embassy to the Persian king in the hope of bringing him 
over to the side of Athens.

as of old, along the Sacred Way. He evidently meant it to be not only 
a military demonstration, but an act of atonement to the priestly party, 
whose hatred he had so deeply incurred (cf. Thuc. viii. 53). Plutarch 
indeed says that he roused such enthusiasm among the common people, 
that they hoped that he would make himself tyrant (cf. Thuc. vi. 15).

rxfi vavapx^as. The origin of the admiralty at Sparta, like that of Book I. 
other Lacedaemonian institutions, is shrouded in some obscurity. Hero- ^ — m — 
dotus (}ii. 56) speaks of a Spartan naval expedition undertaken against -y 
Polycrates, tyrant of Samos, about 525 B.a, but does not mention who 
was the commander. He does however apply the title of vavapxos to 
Eurybiades at the battle of Salamis (viii. 42), but he calls king Leoty- 
chides, who commanded the Greek fleet at Mycale in '4'j^ B.C. arparrjy^s 
Kal vavapxos (viii. 131), showing that at that date the office was not 
permanently separated from the kingship. From this time, with the 
doubtfiil exceptions of the regent Paiisanias and Dorcis (Thuc. i. 95), we 
hear nothing of the admiralty till the time of the Peloponnesian War, 
after the outbreak of which till its close a tolerably complete list of 
admirals can be made out all the time that the Spartans maintained a 
fleet at sea. The list begins with Cnemus 430-429 B.C. (Thuc. ii. 66, 80, 
93), who seems, like the other Spartan magistrates, to Have entered on his 
office in September. Alcidas succeeded after a year's interval, 428-427 
(Thuc. iii. 16, 26), and then after another year's interval, Thrasymelidas^ 
426-425 (Thuc. iv. 11). In 425 the Spartans lost their entire fleet at 
Pylos, and built no more ships until after the Athenian disaster at 
Syracuse. In 413-412 Melancridas was admiral of the newly built 
fleet : he was followed in the two next years by Astyochus (Thuc. viii. 
20) and Mindarus (Thuc. viii. 85), who perished at the battle of Cyzicus 
in the spring of 410 B.C. It is doubtful whether Pasippidas, who was 
commissioned to collect together what ships he could (Xen. i. i. 32) was 
actually admiral or not, and it is doubtful again, when the titular 
admiral Cratesippidas took command over the ships that he had thus 
collected, although Xenophon narrates the fact as occurring apparently 
in the campaign of4ii-4io. At any rate Cratesippidas was not suc- 
ceeded by Lysander till the autunm of 408 (Xen. i. 5. i). At the end 
of his year of office Lysander was followed by Callicratidas, who was 
drovmed at the battle of Arginusae in 406 B.C. (c. June). After an 
interval of some months the fleet- was handed over to Lysander as 
kmaroXevs or second in command, the nominal admiral being Aracus. 
Then there is d. gap of one year in our information, during which 
Lysander was again actual commander of the fleet, whoever may have 
been the titular admiral, and for the following year (404-403) Libys, the 
brother of Lysander, was appointed to be admiral. 

As to the powers of the office Aristotle (Pol. ii. 9. 33) calls it o'x«8^i' 
iripa fiaatXeia — a criticism which seems, however, to be true only of 
Lysander, and possibly of Teleutias, the brother of king Agesilaus 
(392-391 B.C.) ; and which seems tacitly to refer to Aristotle's previous 
definition of the kingship as merely a ffTparrjyia BicL fiiov. In this respect 
the admiral was indeed another king, having a power independent of 



Book I. and parallel with that of the two ordinary kings. But in another respect 
— M— his position was far inferior and more precarious : for the office was, as 
•y a general rule (the case of Cratesippidas, who was sent out. to command 

whatever ships he could find, being apparently an exception), an 
annual one— at least so it would appear from the list of admirals that 
can be made ont with tolerable certainty so long as the Spartans main- 
tained a fleet at sea — and moreover the same individual could not legally 
hold it twice (Xen. ii. 1.7). In the case of Lysander indeed the ephors 
discovered an easy evasion of the law, by appointing him for two 
years liriCToXcvs or second in command to a merely nominal admiral : 
and it was while holding this subordinate position that Lysander attained 
to his greatest power, and acted like a sovereign prince in the 
Aegean. Thus at the siege of Athens (405-404) he appears as con^- 
mander of the fleet quite on an equality with the kings Agis and Pausa- 
nias in command of the army, and further to have the advantage over 
them in that his action was not hampered by the presence of a colleague. 
Again, when any admiral had proved himself inefficient or untrust- 
worthy, the Spartan government preferred, as they did with the kings, 
rather to send out ovyL^ovKoi to advise him than simply to deprive him of 
his office (cf. Thuc. vi. 85, viii. 39), unless this was absolutely necessary. 
The office of the kitioroK^^t^ or second in command has already been 
referred to in the case of Lysander. But in ordinary cases the secretary 
was appointed, as Pollux (i. 96) declares, to be simply b kir\ rov ut6\ov 
itdSoxos rov vavdpxov. Thus after the death of Mindarus, his secretary 
Hippocrates took the command of the fleet (Thuc. i. i, 23), and the 
admiral Callicratidas left his secretary Eteonicus at the head of the 
squadron blockading Conon atMytilene, while he himself sailed to meet 
the Athenians at Arginusae, and after his death his place was filled by 
Eteonicus until the arrival of a definitely appointed successor. 

As to the method of election to the admiralship nothing at all is 
known, though it is plain that the post must have been regarded as of 
great significance in the struggle of political parties at Sparta. Thus 
the choice of L3^sander three times to command the fleet, once as 
admiral and twice as secretary, followed by the choice of his brother 
Libys and later of his friend Anaxibius, points to the supremacy of his 
party in the home government, and similarly the appointment of his 
opponent Callicratidas in the autunm of 407 must mean a temporary 
check to his policy, though but few details can be made out from the 
confused and unchronological account of Plutarch.

BpacruPovXov. Xenophon does not relate how Thrasybulus sailed 
from Thrace and Thasos (supr. 4. 9), nor why he was now fortifying 
Phocaea. This town was occupied by the Spartan admiral Astyochus 
412 B.C. (cf. Thuc. viii. 31), and after Arginusae, 406 B.C., the Pelopon- 
nesians fled to it for refuge. But, like Cyzicus, it may have been un- 
walled, and so liable to occupation by either side, so that there is no 
need to change ruxlCfiv into imrfixiCciv, Diodorus (xiii. 73) has a 
different story altogether, that Alcibiades sailed not to Phocaea, but to 

'AvtCoxov. Plutarch (Ale. 36) calls him an experienced seaman, but 
rash and inconsiderate. In ch. 10 he jelates a story of the manner in 
which, as a boy,, he gained the friendship of Alcibiades.

(xiii. 76) ascribes the capture of Delphinium and Teos not to Lysander, 
but to Callicratidas, and therefore to the year 406 B. c. Hence some 
commentators have proposed to read l4<uv ^ or Tfjiovs instead of 

§' 16. -fj-YYcXOTi. Plutarch (Ale. 36) makes a certain Thrasybulus, son 
of Thraso [to be distinguished from the famous Thrasybulus], return to 
Aliens immediately after the battlq, and there formally impeach Al- 
cibiades for general misconduct. Diodorus (xiii. 73, 74) here again gives 
quite a different account : the general discontent at Athens was, accord- 
ing to him, increased by the accusations of some Cymaean envoys, who , 
complained that, after the battle of Notium, Alcibiades had made a 
descent upon Cyme and ravaged its land, notwithstanding that it \ifas 
an allied state. But something must be wrong in Diodorus* account, 
because Thucydides (-viii. 31, 100) distinctly states that Cyme was on the 
Peloponnesian side. Nepos (Ale. 7) has yet another version, that 
Alcibiades was accused at Athens, not for the defeat at Notium, which 
he does not mention, but for his failure in an attempt upon Cyme. 

dXXovs 84Ka. Since the battle of Notium must have taken place 
in the spring of 407, and elections were held at Athens about May i, 
it would seem that Xenophon must mean, not an extraordinary election 
of generals to replace Alcibiades, but the ordinary elections for the 
year 407-406, at which Alcibiades failed to secure re-election. Other-

in revenge for this repulse. But, if Xenophon's account of the circum-

§ 24. ik6yrav 'AKp^yavra. Xenophon has already, in i. 5. 21, 
narrated this same defeat of the Carthaginians and capture of Acragas as 
events of the year 407, 406. But it appears from Diodoras (xiii. 87, 9a) 
that the capture did not occur till eight months after the defeat, L e. 
December 406, and that Dionysius made himself tyrant of Syracuse 
about June 405. In this passage {kv f /icaovvn, i. e. autumn) it is put 
a few months later. 

$ I. EuSCkov. Some MSS. read Ev5iov, which Dindorf corrects to III. 
*EvMov, because an ephor of that name for. the year 413 B.C. is men-

here and infra § 10.

TIT § 2. ^8o{€ T$ S^H^' This decree was passed, on the proposal of 

Dracontides, in the autumn 404, five months after the conclusion of the 
peace, ii. 2.23. Xenophon passes over all the intervening events, viz. 
the nomination of five ephors through the agency of the oligarchical, 
clubs, the embitterment of internal dissensions, the arrest of the demo- 
cratical leaders, and the invitation sent by the oligarchs' to Lysander, 
who was still besieging Samos, to interfere in the domestic politics of 
Athens (§ 9, in September). When he airived in Athens, his oligarchical 
partisans easily procured the passing of the decree mentioned in the 
text through the assembly with all the usual legal forms, backed 
as they were by the threats of Lysander, on the ground that the 
Athenians had not completed the demolition of the walls within the 
time prescribed in the treaty. Of the Thirty ten were nominated by 
Theramenes, ten by the five ephors, and ten by. the assembly itself.

§ 5. dir(oX€<r€. It appears from Diodorus (xiii. 109-113) that Dio- 
nysius was never really master of these two towns, but was defeated by 
the Carthaginians in marching to the relief of Gela, and then led the 
inhabitants of Gela and Camarina back with him to S3rracuse, and that 
all this happened in the year 405 B.C.

§ 9. €|<5.|jiY)vos Kal 6kt(&. Thucydides (v. 26) distinctly says that the Book II. 
war from the Theban attack on Plataea down to the capture of Athens m ■ 
lasted almost exactly twenty-seven years, and if to this the six months be TXL. 
added down to Lysander's return to Sparta in Sept. 404, the total number 
of years is twenty-seven and a half. Morus (Xenophon, Hellenic, p. xxiii) 
ingeniously shows how the interpolator arrived at the mistaken total. 
For it appears from Thuc. v. 36 that the ephors entered on their office 
about the autumnal equinox. When the war began therefore, Aenesias, 
who had entered on his office in Sept. 432, had still four months of his 
ephorate to run. Twenty-seven more names would bring us down to 
September 404. Then the interpolator adds a twenty-ninth, because 
Eudicus must have entered on his office just before Lysander returned.

(cf. Plut. Ale. 33), and was an exile in Thessaly during the trial of the 
ten generals in 406 B.C. (cf. infr. § 36). So that some have supposed 
that he was banished in 407, as being mixed up with the affairs of 
Alcibiades. He came back with the other exiles after the capture of 
Athens, and was nominated one of the five ephors ; cf. Lysias xii. 78.

demned without the warrant of the Senate, while any other Athenian 
could be put to death simply at the orders of the Thirty.

own statement in i. 7. 6. Probably Theramenes means, that if the 
generals said that a rescue was possible, and yet in their despatch made 
no mention of any orders given to himself and other subordinate officers, 
they would themselves appear responsible for the death of the ship- 
wrecked sailors. But the generals never said anything of the kind.

ing about the -second oligarchical revolution he is as skilful and successful Book II. 
in his intrigues as he was in the first. So soon as he perceives that the '* ' 

policy of the Thirty is leading them to certain destruction, he opposes III, 
them with the same skill as he had used in setting them up ; and when 
at last his opposition brings him into personal danger, the nobler side 
of his character shines out, till he drinks the cup of hemlock with the 
courage and cheerfulness of Socrates. But after all that can be said in 
his favour, it is hard to understand Aristotle's judgment on Theramenes, 
quoted by Plutarch (Nicias 2), where he mentions him in the same 
category with the statesmen Nicias and Thucydides, as ^iXntrroi rSw 
voXirSav teal rtarpiic^v ^xoJ'tcs tvvoiav koI <l>i>dav irpds rhv drjfioVy though at 
the same time admitting the justice of his nickname of K60opvos. Beloch 
indeed" (Die Politik Athens seit Perikles), relying on Theramenes' own 
words in § 48, tries to show that he consistently aimed to establish a 
moderate democracy at Athens, based on the middle classes, who had 
some stake in the state, both when he joined the conspiracy of the Four 
Hundred in 411, and when he became one of the Thirty in 404 B.C., and 
that he turned against his colleagues on both occasions, not from a mere 
wish to save his own life, but because he really disapproved of the 
extreme form of oligarchy, which they had introduced, based as it was 
upon robbery and murder. From the epithet 6 K0fjaf/6sf which is given to 
him by Aristophanes, we may conclude that he was in the habit of draw- 
ing delicate distinctions ; and very delicate distinctions indeed are required 
to free him from the charge of treachery in his conduct at the trial of the 
generals and the capitulation of Athens.

Irt Kal vOv. It is impossible to fix with any exactitude what time 
is denoted by these words. Xenophon accompanied C3TUS on his expe- 
dition against his brother in 401 B.C., a time which allows too short an 
interval to give the words any real meaning ; and he did not return to 
Greece till 394 B.C. On the other hand it cannot be very long after 
the events described, because the praise assigned to the Athenians must 
mean that consistently with the amnesty they did not prosecute certain 
definite persons, who had been implicated in the enormities of the 
Thirty, and such prosecutions were only likely to have taken place in 
the succeeding ten or fifteen years. We may therefore perhaps infer 
that Xenophon wrote these words not very long after his return to 


(1. 1. 16.) 

^irctS^ JS* CTY^) «.T.X. Diodorus (xiii. 49-51) gives a much fuller 
account of the battle, and conceives it quite differently. Plutarch (Ale. 
28) seems to follow Xenophon in the main, but to add details frond the 
same source as Diodorus. 

According to Diodorus,. the several divisions of the Athenian fleet 
united at Cardia, and then sailed up the Hellespont to Proconnesus, 
taking care to pass Abydos by night, that the increase m their numbers 
might not be noticed by the enemy. Mindarus, with the help of Phar- 
nabazus, had just taken Cyzicus by storm. Next day the Athenians 
disembarked their soldiers, under Chares, upon the Cyzicene territory, 
and with their fleet in three divisions, under Alcibiades, Thrasybulus, 
and Theramenes, sailed against the enemy at Cyzicus. Alcibiades went 
ahead in order to vpo/ea\i<raa0cu rovs voXtfjiiovSj the other two generals 



aiming to surronnd'them and cut them off from the city. Mindarus 
saw only Alcibiades' ships, and, despising their numbers, sailed out to 
meet them; whereupon Alcibiades by pretending flight drew him 
voppojripo) Tfjs irdKeojSf till suddenly he faced about, and Theram«ies 
and Thrasybulus, seeing his signal, sailed towards the city and cut off 
the Peloponnesians. Mindarus, now seeing the whole Athenian fleet 
(nothing is said about any mist), fled to shore at Cleri, where Phama- 
bazus was encamped. Alcibiades hotly pursued him, sunk some of his 
ships, took others, and tried to drag others off the beach. The Pelo- 
ponnesian land forces and the troops of Phamabazus now came to the 
assistance of Mindaiiis, whereupon Thrasybulus disembarked his marines 
and sent word to Theramenes to bring up the soldiers under Chares. 
Meanwhile Mindarus, supported by the mercenaries of Phamabazus and 
also by Clearchus, firmly stood his ground. "When however Thera- 
menes arrived with the reinforcements and joined Thrasybulus, first the 
mercenaries broke the line and fled, and then Clearchus was obliged to 
retire. Theramenes and his.troops jiow went off to the help of Alcibiades. 
Mindarus was thus obliged to divide his forces : one division he sent to 
oppose Theramenes, while he 'himself at the head of the other made 
a brave resistance against Alcibiades, until after many heroic exploits 
he was himself slain. His death was the signal for a general flight 
among the Peloponnesians ; but the Athenians were unable to pursue 
them far, because their retreat was covered by Phamabazus, who now 
arrived on the scene. 

According to Plutarch, Alcibiades, on arriving in the Athenian camp, 
hearing that Mindams and Phamabazus were in Cyzicus, determined to 
fight, and exhorted his troops accordingly. Then he sailed with the 
whole fleet to Proconnesus, where he ordered ivrbs v€pifidk\€iv rSi XenrA 
vkoia, that no news of his intended attack might reach the enemy, his 
precaution being much aided by a great thunderstorm and thick mist. 
Then the whole fleet set sail, and when the mist gradually lifted, Alci- 
biades saw the Peloponnesian fleet vpo rov ki/iivos tSjv Kv(iKrjvSfv. 
Thereupon he ordered the other generals to keep behind out of sight, 
while he himself, sailing on in front with forty ships, vpovicaXuro rov^ 
voKffxious. The Peloponnesians, despising his small numbers, sailed to 
meet him, and at once joined battle ; but when the rest of the Athenian 
fleet came up, they turned and fled. At this juncture Alcibiades, 8tcic- 
vXfwxas with twenty of his fastest vessels, made for the shore, disembarked, 
and slew many of the enemy, as they fled from their ships. Mindams 
(who is not mentioned as being on board the Peloponnesian fleet at all) 
and Phamabazus now came up to the rescue, but in vain : for Alcibiades 
quickly slew Mindarus and put Phamabazus to flight.
